    This list is pure heaven! Please can you advise me if I can register for new properties/price reductions as they join this list?
    Many thanks,
    Juliet Boulton

    • Editor says:

      Thanks, Juliet, at the moment the only way to see the latest new properties/price reductions is by viewing the BISH News page. Maybe in the future I may do something like Tweets for them (via Twitter), but for now I don’t have the time, and Twitter only allows 140 characters and no thumbnail images.
