Whaleys Orders

February 27, 2015

I have sent off an order to Whaleys today. If any others would like to order from them, please get together and make sure there are at least 2 of you. I can then send off the order forms and you will get 10% off the order, plus save by sharing postage.

We now have sample books, but these will be kept in the office, so please ask if you need to see them.
