Again, this month's is an on-line and e-mail issue. Until the area's many folk clubs and folk dance clubs are again up and running, we have no real distribution network, nor club members to collect the copies. Please keep your fingers crossed that most of the clubs will be active again in September, and that our issue for that month will once again be a paper copy.
Solent Waves is our monthly newsletter, now in colour! Actually it is published 10 times a year as we combine the months of July and August as well as December and January. We have been producing this magazine since 1977 and back then cut and paste really did involve cutting pieces of typewritten script from pages submitted and sticking them together to be driven to the printers. We are proud to be the longest standing customer of our ever helpful printers - Sarsen Press. At the bottom of this page you can see some early copies, with dances at 60p and £4.75 or £7.00 (including camping) for folk festivals.
We welcome submissions on anything you care to tell us about folk activities. If you have anything you would like included, just send it to the editor. Please note that the cut-off date for any material, including adverts, is the 10th of the month preceeding publication.
'Solent Waves' is free to FASH members; a donation from non-members would be much appreciated. It can be collected from local clubs and events, or you can receive a monthly copy by post, by sending a cheque (payable to 'FASH') for £6.50 per annum, together with a short covering note, to our Solent Waves Distributor, see address on our contacts page. You are also welcome to receive Solent Waves each month in softcopy pdf format by email. Just send a request to the editor.
The newsletter has details of the next couple of months' dances and folk club events. During the summer, Morris and other dance displays are included if there is space. We are always willing to include events, so if you know of a date and would like it included, then contact the Solent Waves editor. FASH cannot guarantee the accuracy of entries, but hopefully there are few errors. Two line entries are free of charge but donations are never refused.
