LATEST NEWS: New Senior Editor Announced!


  1. Mary Spence


    What a smashing little magazine. How this has grown in stature since the early days is amazing. All thanks to the team of willing volunteers (otherwise know as the Maplines Editors) who cajole, bribe and otherwise elicit articles for our enjoyment. The content reaches far beyond our everyday environment with a wide array of articles from many different facets of our discipline and beyond. It may sound a bit clichéd but ‘keep up the good work folks!’
