Newsletter

The Association’s Newsletter, First Day Coverage, is published six times a year and sent free to members. It is full of interesting news and articles and provides a much valued forum for airing different opinions and viewpoints. The emphasis is on members contributions and there are often several pages of Readers’ Letters.

We prefer to email the Newsletter as a full colour pdf file, to reduce costs and the environmental impact. However we are conscious that many members prefer a paper copy, which is now in full colour also.

GBFDC Membership fees are reduced if you opt for Email Newsletters.
