We’ve presented our story of the year and we’ll be publishing other year-in-review articles tomorrow. In the meantime, here’s another way to look back on the year that was: the Beefs of the Year.
Some of our favourite content in the News Bulletin each week is submitted by our readers. Beefs & Bouquets is a popular feature appearing every Thursday, both print and online. We encourage anyone to submit beefs and bouquets to firstname.lastname@example.org.
