We’re still here, we promise!

2023 blew by in the blink of an eye…! So did 2022… … and 2021. In fact it was 2019 the last time we dedicated time to updating our own website. Of course, we’ve still been around on social media, but putting time aside to maintain the website has been long overdue. So what’s happened […]

When is a blog not a blog…

When it’s never updated, that’s when. The aim of our blog was to keep supporters up to date in a pretty informal manner with our key activities and achievements.
