New  Style for imagenews

Due to the high cost of printing and postage, along with the increased access that most people have to on-line news sources, image news will mainly exist from now on as an on-line version.  We will continue to post printed versions to image supporters who request this service.  If you have not yet subscribed to an on-line version of image news then you may do so at  http://www.imagenet.org.uk/involved.html.  

If you left-click on any of the “read more” links then you will be directed either to the article on our expanded web version of the image news article or to an article concerning life issues on a different website.  In this way we hope to be able to direct you to more items of interest than in our previous printed issues of image news.
