[ A note from the team ]

Welcome to the fiftieth issue of SE1 Direct.

Just a quick note to let you know that this will be the
last SE1 Direct mailing for a while - we're taking a
break for a few weeks but we'll be back in August with
a bigger and better newsletter for you, and a refreshed
and expanded website.

We rely on your feedback and ideas to develop our
publications and products, so do let us know what you'd
like to see in the next series of SE1 Direct mailings
and on the London SE1 website at
http://www.London-SE1.co.uk by emailing us at
feedback@banksidepress.com
