If you have just started receiving again after a period of time, please let us know.  Sorry for the inconvenience that this has caused over recent weeks.  It appears that even though emails have successfully been sent that email providers such as Google Gmail and Apple iCloud have been rejecting the MailChimp emails before delivery.

The first email from this new email address should arrive 5 pm Wednesday 2 October 2019.
