Uno scritto di Kate Westbrook, Tracks of Desire, inaugura il nuovo strumento informativo ideato dai Westbrook, lo Smith’s Academy Notice Board, collocato all'interno del sito web ufficiale e inteso ad ospitare analisi e approfondimenti di vario respiro su aspetti e temi di rilievo. Va a sostituire il glorioso Smith’s Academy Informer fondato trentatré anni fa da John e Margery Styles - e successivamente affidato alle cure di Martin King - le cui pubblicazioni hanno oltrepassato il centinaio di capitoli. Tutto cangia, il ciel s'abbella!

For over 30 years the Smith’s Academy Informer, founded by John and Margery Styles has chronicled the activities of the Westbrook Band. Originally a printed, quarterly newsletter circulated by post, latterly published online more sporadically, the SAI has kept track of tours, recordings and new projects. Now that the relaying of up-to-date information is provided by the Social Media and the Diary and Latest News pages on the website, the Informer is free to concentrate on its other function, that of providing a space for reportage and background information. Re-invented as the Smith’s Academy Notice Board, it will in future set out to give a platform to comment, analysis and in-depth writing on relevant topics. The Notice Board will be published on the website and each new publication will be notified by email. Back issues of SAI will continue to be available on the website.
