BACKPASS 69 UPDATE
BACKPASS 69 has been sent out to subscribers – but please be patient as we understand there are postal delays. This issue will not be available in the shops for the time being … though that decision will be reviewed in early May. However you can purchase the magazine direct from us for £4.99 (see BACKPASS page), the same price as in the shops … we will pay the postage. But the BACKPASS office is now only mailing out copies once or twice a week so please be patient. Additionally our email response will also be longer than normal. If you need to contact us urgently you can ring 0330-6061417 and leave a message.
If you can afford to subscribe for the next six issues, that would be of great benefit to the magazine in these increasingly difficult times. Things were happening behind the scenes at BACKPASS, but for the time being, they have had to be put on hold. We will hopefully have more news on those developments in the next couple of months. Stay safe .. and thanks as ever for your wonderful support of BACKPASS.
