been hit by a 'triple whammy' and your patience
is requested. At a critical time of production, Deborah
Bryce, our designer, was involved, as a passenger, in a
car accident and has been in hospital since Sunday 6 April. All
being well, she should be back on Jura on Good Friday. The back-up
version of her design was found to be incompatible
with the software at the Studio of the printing company. The Easter
Holiday close-down will not help. Consequently we hope
that this issue will be with you and in the shops by Saturday 26
April. Meanwhile we wish Deborah a full recovery and look forward
to seeing her skills on display, in print, within the next ten days.
