The autumn/winter edition of our members’ magazine, Gamewise, has been printed and is now on its way to our members.
For the first time, this issue will be sent wrapped in a fully biodegradable wrapper. The wrap is made of potato starch and is certified as fully home compostable. This means it can easily be disposed of with food waste, garden compost or in green recycling bins if your council have them.
