As the title says, our Website, Forum & email, along with others that are hosted on the same Server, is being moved to a new Server, the work is due to commence sometime during the week beginning Monday 30th July 2018 and will take place during normal UK working hours (details to be updated when available). It is inevitable that there will be some disruption to service whilst this takes place. The site may be down for a significant time and/or the service may come and go as things are moved and re-configured. You should not need to make any alterations regarding addresses, bookmarks, favourites etc. Sorry for any interruptions, hopefully, all will go smoothly and will result in a better service.

UPDATE:-

This now looks likely to take place during the afternoon of Monday 6th August 2018.

Hi, I had problems uploading images yesterday. I assume this is because of the server switch. Has the move been completed and are we back to normal now please?

Just tried to upload again, seems to be working fine. Much faster response times from the new server too. Thanks for your efforts in upgrading.

Hi Admin. Just a line to say that the new server is doing a great job. A very worthwhile upgrade, ( speed more of a Gold Star than a Bantam)

Thanks Grahamtip-my-hatbowthank-you

I can't claim any credit for the move, it was instigated by our web host although the speed increase is a very pleasant surprise.

Unfortunately, as with any work of this type, there are a few gremlins we are still working to eradicate. One of these is an apparent fault in the email service in that some messages and emails are not being received. Apologies for any inconvenience, hopefully we should get this sorted soon.
