St Andrews in Focus - Issue 79 Nov / Dec 2016
From the Editor
If you fly from, or to, Edinburgh Airport you will see racks called Media Walls displaying publications for you to pick up free, to enliven your journey. When I met the lady who runs this project she kindly let me place 100 copies of the July/Aug issue as a pilot to see what would happen. The copies were picked up immediately! This was so encouraging that the Byre Theatre agreed to sponsor 500 copies of the Sept/Oct issue. The first update I had told me that the copies were being snapped up. By 20 September I had my first request to take out a subscription, and also an enquiry from someone else about advertising rates. Hopefully, by the time you read this there will be other good outcomes. Media Walls are in almost every airport in the world, so the potential for a wider readership is huge. The cost is pretty reasonable too, so the more sponsorship the merrier! My grateful thanks to Stephen Sinclair at the Byre, and to Lyn Witcomb who manages the Media Wall project in Scotland (see page 15). Here’s wishing everyone a very Happy Christmas when it comes, and a great Hogmanay.
