A message from NENG Chairman, Ken Lambert...
 
 
"Dear Nether Edge neighbours,  for the first time since April it has been possible to distribute printed copies of Edge magazine to our subscribers. In view of 2020's unique and difficult circumstances we have made editions of EDGE freely available electronically over recent months. I pleased to say that September's edition includes details of the forthcoming Nether Edge Festival and in addition to circulating printed copies, we are making this available for you to download and read either HERE or by clicking the Edge header above. Please feel free to circulate it to your friends and neighbours.
 
If you have problems with downloading, you can request an 
email copy from nengdistribution@gmail.com. Instead of the usual "What's 
on" (not a lot) page, there is a page with some useful contact 
information relating to the coronavirus. We would really like to hear from you with anecdotes about how you are getting on, so we can share them in a future edition... do keep safe and well in the meantime.


With my best wishes,

Ken Lambert NENG Chair"
