1. Avoids confusion about independence of organisation
from host address.

2. Remains permanent across changes of officers/
secretaries/ whoever handles the post we receive:
No need to change address after it becomes established 
and well-known.


1. Needs setting up (time and money)

2. Needs maintaining (not much time, but regular
money - smll for PO box, slightly larger for
business mailing address).

3. Slower - slight delay as mail is forwarded/ collected

- Richard

Similarly we could have a permanent
0870 'phone number, forwarded to Mark
or whoever else volunteers to answer
enquiry/press calls.
