AND PERSONAL HOMEPAGES
For any company or organisation wanting nationwide green publicity, there is an opportunity to sponsor the journal "Glaucus" of the British Marine Life Study Society.
There remains sponsorship opportunities on the BMLSS (England) web site and other publications, including Torpedo.
Sponsorship is also available for the Adur Electronic News Bulletin and the Shoreham-by-Sea web pages (which preceded the Adur Resource Centre web site), which would be more suitable for a local firm(s).
Normal advertisement rules
Adur Torpedo was written, designed and distributed by Andy Horton.
NB: Because I had the
flu when I compiled the Millennium issue of the Adur News Bulletin, several
spelling mistakes and omissions crept in.
