31 MARCH 2017

Well, it's been about two years since I last did a major update of this site... so I thought it was only appropriate to not only add some new pages and update others, but to give the whole site a thorough 'makeover'!

It is still a 'work in progress', and will take some time to complete and standardize the 'new look' across the whole site, but already I think the whole look and general 'feel' of the site is very much improved... I hope you do to!

Expect a MAJOR update to the site in the first week of May... :)
