New Look?

The site is undergoing a major update at the moment. Don’t worry if things aren’t quite right. If you keep checking back things should slowly be improving. Eventually the idea is to have a fully integrated, regularly updated and smooth looking website. That’s a long way off but we are heading in the right direction.

Any ideas of features you’d like to see, or errors that are hanging around and not getting fixed, let us know using the contact details at the top of the page.
