Postage Price Changes

Royal Mail have decided that they are not making enough multi-millions as it is and are changing the way post is being priced in the UK. As a result, postage on copies of the zine within the UK is being raised from 50p to 70p.

The change takes place on Monday 21st August; however I am altering the cost now as I won't be able to send [new] orders before then.

I am now back from holiday and happily plonked back in England. All currently outstanding orders will be sent out today.
