Member Newsletter
July 2013

Please find attached copies of the HRRA Newsletter, we hope you will find it of interest.

You will note that I have attached it in two formats, word and pdf, this is to ensure everyone is able to access a copy (they are both the same so no need to download both).

We would very much appreciate your feedback so that we know whether our efforts are concentrated in the right places or not.

Please feel free to contact us with any queries or suggestions.

Kind regards
