This issue is printed on light weight (37 gsm) newsprint offered to us at a special price by our new printer. It saves us £50 per issue and spares one smallish tree a little longer. What do you think of it? Would you rather pay only 45p and get a flimsy mag or 50p for something solid enough for other purposes when you’ve finished reading it?
