The Society produces a bi-annual newsletter called The Gazette
The Gazette contains news from the society as well as a wealth of articles and information from OSOBS members from the UK and around the world and also features news from the wider Ottershaw School Community. It is distributed for free to all paid up members of the society.
Over the years the format has changed and with the advent of e-mail has been produced as a PDF file for distribution over the internet thus saving a considerable amount of money which used to be spent on compiling, printing and postage.
Currently The Gazette is produced in full colour and distributed via the website as a PDF file to all paid up members of the society. For those without e-mail, a printed black and white hard copy is posted although in recent times the cost of providing this service has risen and it will prove more and more difficult to maintain without raising the subscription fee or making a small charge to cover the printing and postage costs.
Despite having drastically reduced the costs of producing The Gazette over the past two years we have actually been able to considerably increase the average content and recently, the Society decided to make copies available to non members for a small fee. So if you are not a member of OSOBS, but would like a copy of the latest edition, you can now order one using the drop down PayPal list below.
Of course the most economic way of obtaining a copy of The Gazette is to become a member of OSOBS then you will receive your copies for free! – and now members have access to many past copies as well in our Gazette Library. Click here for more information on membership,
To whet you appetite, we have made one edition of a recent Gazette available - but please note this is only a sample and is a low resolution copy, a genuine Gazette will be in full colour and in much higher resolution.
We hold electronic back copies of almost every edition of The Gazette and a few newletters from beyond that! - and these are now available to paid-up members to download from our Gazette Library. Copies are also be available to non-members for a fee.
