Where can one find copies of this wondrous magazine?

I … would like to know where I can regularly obtain a copy of this publication. Is there a list available of the community centres or other venues that are part of the distribution chain? I am happy to chase it, but have no idea where to start.

Thank you. Judy, via email 2 Nov 2020
