FROM THE EDITOR's WINDOWfrom the editor's desk

Hi I'm thrilled to join the NPA team as the incoming Journal editor. Glyn is a hard act to follow and has given me as smooth an introduction as possible. Thanks to all those contributors who provided ballast for this issue! And special thanks to Janice Beavan for her help above and beyond the call of duty!

NPA's Michelle Johnston has also provided a list of the many discount benefits that your NPA membership will give you (see page ten of the Walks Supplement), and presto the results of the NPA Membership survey, page19.

I look forward to meeting many of you on and off the pages of the Journal.

Regards,
Rosemary Pryor
