Monthly Schedule - December 2016

Howdy all,

It’s my pleasure to send you on the Gateway MHA Monthly Schedule for December 2016. I  jazzed it up with some festive decoration for the month that’s in it!

The Newsletter Team are hard at work on the December issue, which will be sent around as soon as it is ready.

This is also the last time that I will be sending these around personally, as I finish working for Gateway next Thursday, but not to worry – the folks will make sure it still reaches you each month .

Cheers and all the best,

John M.
