survey 2nd fair

Dear friends,

If you click on the link below (or copy/paste it into your browser) you will be able to give us your opinion on a possible date for a 2nd fair.

We don’t have much time so the survey will be open for 3 days only including today.


I would also like to offer an apology for the newsletter about the tombola. I tried a different method. The explanation in the module was unclear and it just sent out all the different language version separately bombarding those receiving it. I will not be using that method again I can assure you.

If, however, you somehow missed it you can find the post about the tombola on the website by following this link:


Thank you,
