Editorial meeting

This week we compared our pages and made some decisions on some of the smaller aspects, such as the line at the bottom of each page with the page number and details of the website. Unfortunately I left my memory stick with my work on in wakefield so I was unable to show much, apart from what I had done on my music page this morning. I shall finish the music article tomorrow and be ready to print that on fridays session
