Blurbs for Training Centres

Tina and Ami are hoping that we can get together as a group of trainees to write a blurb for each of our training sites to put up on the APEM website for prospective subspeciality trainees.  The aim is to get this finished before the next round of application.  Can I ask on Tina and Ami's behalf for a trainee from each training centre to put together a blurb and email it to me please.
