Leaflets, books and other merchandise

Either purchase online, or print off and complete the 8-page Order Form and return it to our head office (see Administration, above). When ordering online, and following payment, you will be sent an email that is your receipt/invoice and contains a link and password that returns you to our website and allows you to download your leaflet. If you think you haven’t received this email, it is worth checking your spam/junk folder to be sure, before contacting us.
