  1. Hi John,

    My father in law retired Supt Alan Newton has previously received your email updates.

    For some reason he appears to have dropped off the mailing list.

    His email address is margaret.newton@btinternet.com. Could you please re add him to your mailing list.

    Thank you

    Stu Kinton
