Solent Waves is our monthly newsletter. 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. This July/August issue is the last that we shall produce as a paper copy; in future, 'Solent Waves' will only be available as a download from this web-page, or we can send each issue direct to your e-mail in-box. We are sad to be leaving our ever-helpful printers, Sarsen Press, but rising costs mean we can no longer afford to produce and distribute paper copies.

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 of course free to FASH members and also to non-members. It can be downloaded from this page of our website or you are also welcome to receive Solent Waves each month in 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. We are always willing to include events, so if you know of a date and would like it included, then email 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.

Or you can advertise in the newsletter. We send out via e-mail over 70 'electronic' copies and it can be downloadded from this page of our website. Prices are very cheap, so good value, and we have reduced them now we no longer produce paper copies. Advertisements must be prepaid - cheques payable to FASH, or ask for details of bank transfer. Please supply hardcopy sized around twice the sizes listed below or, preferably, electronic copy (eg .doc, .gif, .jpg). Alternatively, provide the words and the Editor will be happy to assist. Rates for individual members of FASH in brackets.
