How to slash Area and Group costs for postage and printing (26/11/10)

Heres news of an excellent initiative by Woking Ramblers to slash their costs, and give their members more choice.

The costs of printing and postage keep going up (a second class stamp costs 32p these days!), and we know that printing and postage costs for walk programmes are often the bulk of Area and Group expenses.

Woking Ramblers have managed to persuade 80% of their members to get their walking programme from the internet leading to massive cost savings.  The more we save on printing and posting, the more can be spent on other things like campaigningand the less pressure for subs increases.

To find out how this was done, read the article by David Ross, Surrey Area Secretary, on the Volunteer Features page on the website:
