For more about her see http://www.camdennewjournal.co.uk/article/margie-dolan-campaigner-who-devoted-life-to-fighting-for-social-justice. She was one of the speakers when BBC Radio Open Country visited. Listen here Open Country.

There has been a flurry of media interest in us started by your vice-chairman talking to a journalist. Here is your chairman talking to Nicola Haseler of BBC Look East. Her report was aired on Wednesday June 14.
The first article was in the Sunday Telegraph about the threat to land near E M Forster's childhood home.

After a decade of work on the Poston papers, John Alabaster has produced a glossy book encapsulating much of the previous works. As the title suggests, it is a full list of works published or not, set in a biographical context. Though more expensive than earlier subsidised works, it is for anyone interested in her or neglected female composers of her era. It is available at Lulu.com page http://www.lulu.com/shop/john-alabaster/elizabeth-poston-catalogue-of-works-with-biographical-context/paperback/product-23663053.html#expand_text
