    Dear Holly and other readers
    We did have the meeting in freezing Lincoln yesterday – very pleased to see it described as cool. So cool it was -10!
    Two people who were newly qualified made it but several had wanted to come and been unable to get there. We will be holding more events like this for new people so watch out for us on archives-nra and the new ARA website. As a result we’re hoping to do more web content for aspiring and newly qualified including tips and opportunities for getting work experience, cv and application form advice and information about interviews. Hopefully this will help many of you. Whilst jobs are scare they are very rewarding so keep trying everyone.
