Let it all go

Okay. I’ve let this website go a bit over the last year. However, I’ve just updated the theme and aim to develop it in the coming weeks and months, as new material becomes available, as well as including and updating archival material from past events.

Catching up

Some of the posts and links prior to this post may be out of date or not working as I have amalgamated content from another site that I have sidelined. I apologise if you encounter any of these. It will take some time but from here on, I aim to work my way backwards, revising the content and fixing any broken connections.

Keep in touch

I hope you enjoy the new look and come back periodically for regular updates. If you have any good information about events or activities that could be useful to me, please get in touch.
