Barrow Voice in production

Here at Barrow Voice we love getting articles and letters - please keep them flowing. (We’re delighted to have mail in this edition - see letters page.)

However, if you send in copy with photographs embedded in the text the first thing we do is take them out, so please attach the original image separately as our magazine designers need complete flexibility and they’re the ones who later arrange the pics on the page. Just thought you’d like to know.

But what about this Christmas edition? Once again we have a wide range articles from the early years of The Navi to living in very much colder Barrow, one in Alaska , to news of a local Eco House and a story from the past of a very large Barrow family that used to fit into a very small cottage. And lots on the Arts and Village Life + a Christmas Quiz that isn’t too hard. What more could you possibly want?

Merry Christmas,

Gaynor Barton, Editor
