Welcome to the new look website

As you all know, Malcolm Lovell stepped down as Webmaster at the end of the current season, and I have taken on the role.

Malcolm did a wonderful job, for many, many years and I’m sure we all offer him our gratitude, and wish him well for the future.

I am using a different approach, and I hope you all like the new look to the website. Any comments will be welcome!

Simon Lynch, Webmaster
