hi, i've got an email from carol, just have to let her know district i want to transcribe, just one problem! what is snail mail? call me thick if you like,but i hav'nt heard of it before. chris.


Simon Report 14 Mar 2004 11:56

Christine, The term 'snail mail' refers to the conventional postal service (which actually these days make snails look like olympic sprinters !) as opposed to e-mail etc. Simon

It's great to see all the names for volunteers. It does look daunting at first but there is plenty of help if you get stuck. We can try and help each other too.
