FFTITC Nimble News 5th July 2021

How can we improve our Nimble News?


We know you are all busy and newsletters are often not particularly relevant to your day to day work. At times, you may ignore them (I know I sometimes do!)

Our aim with Nimble News is to provide you with information that we believe will add value to your work. But we are aware that some of you don’t click on any of the links.


So, we need your help. If you have an opinion or suggestion, we’d like to hear it. Please click here and we will contact you for a chat. Thanks in advance!!
