WHAT’S HAPPENING News Edited by Sarah Coxson

Because we go to press a month before publication date there are occasionally announcements made after copy date about things which will have passed by the time the next issue is published. We have a LATE BREAKING NEWS page in the fRoots Forum at for such items. If you have urgent news about something happening in the current month, you can register and enter details there.
