Hi everyone, 

Thank you to those of you who took the time to complete our survey regarding the name of The Beacon. We were delighted to receive more than 2,700 responses. 

The most popular response to the question 'What would you like BCNA's magazine to be called?' was The Beacon, with 49.5% of respondents selecting The Beacon. A total of 38.5% of respondents answered Pink Lady, while 12% chose ‘other’.

As The Beacon received the most votes, it will remain the name of the magazine. 

Thank you for speaking up about an issue that mattered to you.

I'd also like to take this opportunity to let those of you who aren't already aware know that I have announced my retirement. You can read the official announcement on our website:

Warm regards,

    Thank you Christine for letting us know, and also sending best wishes for your retirement.
    Your family will be so pleased to have you all to them selves and not have to "share you" with BCNA.
