With you wherever you are

It’s been a year since 
The Mover went 100% digital.  At the time it was received with despair by some and rejoicing by most.  I was always certain that it was the right decision as it gave us much more flexibility in the way we delivered the magazine and the type of content we could include, and I hoped that we made the jump at the right time. Looks like we did.
