The OTR community noticeboard is now open for business. Plug and recommend away to your heart’s content, but remember to declare an interest where one should be declared because it’s only polite, like. Please note that plugs are accepted on the whim of OTR and may be edited for length/clarity/common sense and that stuff which has already been plugged will not be replugged. Events with a commercial sponsor are really ads and will probably not be published in this slot. May the plugs be with you.
