The site is being redeveloped and I apologise that many of the links and some information need to be updated. I am working on it. Do let me know when you find something that is broken. Updated information would be an added bonus! And tell me what other information you would like to find here. What topics will be useful?
Most pages have a link to leave a comment or you can use the contact form to get in touch with me directly.
I’m developing the site substantially over the coming year. While this is happening, some of the navigation is probably going to be a bit haphazard. You’ll find some pages using the main menu bar near the top of the page and the sub-menu on the left. Others from the links under “Categories” in the sidebar on the right. I recommend you looking under both as they don’t link to the same pages. You can also use the search facility. I’m sorry for the inconvenience. At the moment, my priority is to get the information online somewhere as soon as possible. Streamlining navigation will take longer.
