Newsletter–June 2011

With past newsletters sent to me from F2C I felt compelled to post them as seen, formatting and all. This became a bind as Blogger had other ideas about formatting. So this month I’ve just added some of the juicy bits but you can find the full newsletter here.

With this months newsletter, and every subsequent newsletter, I will start with the chairman’s message, as no matter how many supinely indifferent people he meets or reads about he still charges forwards with vigour and is always upbeat in his messages, I always look forward to them.

Chairman's Message

We have great news folks, for the 29th June sees me leading a deputation of dedicated f2c members to a very important function in the Terrace Pavillion of the House of Commons.

Arranged by the Save Our Pubs And Clubs (SOPAC,) campaign and hosted by Greg Knight (Con), Roger Godsiff (Lab) and John Hemming (Lib Dem), this is a wonderful opportunity for all readers to write to their MPs, inviting them to attend. It is also a chance for your local licensees to let their views be known.

Support for the relaxing of the Smoking Ban is growing and this is a wonderful opportunity for you to make your voice heard.
Get writing folks!

There’s much, much more to read in this month’s newsletter here and well worth a read if you want to know what is going on in the world of Tobacco Control worldwide.

I will leave you with a very funny cartoon, to be found on the newsletter link above, about the vagaries of a mass murderer (need I say you have to 'click' on the cartoon to enlarge?)
