As part of its commitment to raising the profile of Rangers SCRA has just published a booklet entitled "Scotland's Rangers".  It explains what Rangers do, using a number of examples of projects, and is aimed to managers, politicians and other opinion formers. 

We would like Rangers to distribute it around their own organistation and encourage you to include an insert giving information on your own service's achievements.  

We have already sent publications to some services via Rangers who attended the Rendezvous at Culzean, and the 40th birthday celebration at Battleby.  The rest will be posted shortly.  If you want more copies or don't receive any by early December please contact This email address is being protected from spambots.
