Value of MapRA printed newsletters. Thanks for the response to the survey; About 25% value the printed newsletter; 30% would be happy with it online; 45% only need the weekly emails. Discussed at our committee meeting yesterday and we decided to keep the March / April printed newsletter. But the Xmas one would become a more information oriented page or two; with a printed version for those not on email or others who request it.
