You can read the November 2021 issue of AFLOAT by clicking  here or / and collect your copy at your favourite distribution point.

After careful consideration the Afloat team has decided not to print the October issue of Afloat magazine. 
At this stage, too many key distribution points are temporarily closed and those that remain open we believe will have reduced traffic given the current concerns and restrictions with respect to Covid.

AFLOAT broadcasts a fortnightly newsletter.
