A quick update on our communications and systems

We are actively working on improving our communications - getting away from boring emails - we hope that members approve! We have cloned the concept of the Events Diary from other Companies (no names - no pack drill) and the next stage will include updating the website front page and adding some extra content to the website to promote our events. Please pass any ideas to  In parallel, we continue to invest in and enhance our membership database and our use of Microsoft Office systems. Of course this all takes time and we have had some hiccups. So if you spot any oddities, please let us know (same email address).
