VE NEWS - stories from the world of ve


Following feedback, we’ve decided that as from our June/July 2018 issue, all our news stories will be going online only and not appear in the magazine. “Why’s that?” we hear you ask – well, being online means that every news story will have a direct website link which you can share on Social Media!  You’ll be able to browse our news pages and click through to any websites you’d like to see – it’s easier, more interactive and quicker. It also means that stories can be more in depth and updated when necessary. But, best of all... we’ll now have more room in the magazine to bring you even more great articles!  We will be evolving these pages over the next couple of months so please keep checking back!
