Major website update

You will notice that the website has had a significant update.

The changes made gives the site a more modern feel, and importantly make it friendlier to use on current tablet and smartphone technology.

The remainder of the content of the site will be refreshed over coming weeks to fit with the new design.

As always, if you would like to add news items or information, just click on the ‘email editor’ button!

One of the features of the new design is that you can click on the ‘three bars’ symbol at the top of the page to drop down menus and other information not presented on tablets and smartphones (or where you have a narrow window on your PC or Mac). Previously this information was shown at the bottom of the page.
