We regret to announce the temporary suspension of website updating


This is due to your website manager moving house with a consequent interruption of internet service.

Normally this would be for only a couple of weeks but because of extensive building alterations this period is likely to be in the region of two months. It may be possible to operate some sort of partial service but we would ask if you could refrain from sending material unless it is really urgent.  


Our apologies for this action, Tony .Mansell
