Compass distributors will be collecting the subscription fee for 2020 at the end of November when they deliver the December issue.
The cover price remains at 50p, and the discounted price for annual subscription will be £5.00 – so you will receive 12 copies for the price of 10, delivered to your door. It would help if you could have your money ready when they call. If paying your subscription is a struggle, speak to your distributor. Thank you.
