NEWSLETTER SUMMARIES                    
                            This page does not connect to the newsletters because they are being sucked off the site and put on the Internet.   
                             Our newsletters are really intended for members - not that they are confidential.     
                             Copies of newsletters are available on request. 
                                            

       The Club brings out a Newsletter on an irregular schedule - just when there is enough content.
       Contributions are very welcome from members, suppliers and any accredited individual or organisation. 
       However, it must be related to Feltham Aston Martins or those made before 1960. 
      There are many interesting stories out there - so let's have them.
