They are not yet on the National website, but our good friends in South Wales have put the first dozen or so Newsletters on their Local Group website. Go to www.southwalesldwa.org and select "Early days" and "LDWA Newsletters".

Couldn't find it.

Am I missing something?
Was it decided not to do it, or is it just a case of "it's on the list" and "there are only 24 hours in a day"?

As a matter of fact we are about to do just what you suggest, starting with Strider 110. Our printers will supply a PDF file of each edition of Strider which will be available to view in "The Library".
Walk programmes and one or two other pages will be removed, principally to avoid telephone numbers and addresses being available on a publically accessible website.
Sadly, you will still need to search for that elusive article. It might have been desirable to include a search facility, but this would be costly, time consuming and difficult to achieve. However individual articles of particular interest from previous and future editions of Strider can be made available in the "Useful/Interesting Articles" section of The Library, and suggestions would be most welcome.

As title.
Don't know if this one's done the rounds before.
I imagine it's a balance between revenue from sales of back-issues and benefits of greater information, promotion and accessibility (and would save my groaning bookshelves and endless searching for some distant remembered article). Surely, after a reasonable delay (to assuage those that pay for Strider via subs) it should be possible?
(or have I missed the bl**ding obvious?)
