Welcome to our second edition of the Newsletter. We hope that everyone is keeping well and looking forward to the better times ahead. Thank you to everyone who has sent in comments. In this edition we have a further 3 Open Learning tutors writing a short piece about their subject area, which we hope you will find of interest. In addition our French tutors serve up a little bit of France.
