Issue 101: Winter 2021: Available from the Museum shop for £4.50

A note from Julie Dexter, editor of Five Arches Journal, with respect to the new price of £4.50.

‘Putting the finishing touches to the latest issue of Five Arches, I’m conscious of two things. The first is that the issue is later than usual, so a big thanks to you for your patience and understanding. When you read page 3, remember that Five Arches is one of the volunteering opportunities at the Museum. The second is that the cover price has increased, and with it the cost of a subscription. Our last price increase was in the spring of 2017, so we’ve done well to hold it unchanged for so long, but the increases in postage and production costs have finally necessitated the change.’
