  • WELCOME !!! WE HAVE A NEW WEBMASTER AND A NEW LOOK WEBSITE. Following some technical difficulties with the previous organisation hosting our website it has been decided to use the skill and knowledge of our new volunteer webmaster Dean Hughes. And the outcome is a new look website with a much lower annual maintenance cost.You are currently looking at the basic version, and over the next few weeks and months many of the favourite elements of the old site will return. So we hope our many community groups will take stock and update their pages as they are uploaded back onto the site. Please contact our webmaster Dean if you need some assistance with this.Please let us know what you think!
