Website update (and migration of old site)

As members will be aware (from the email I sent) the hosting fees that we pay for the old website were due to be increased by a substantial amount in November. 

To avoid paying these fees I've spent the best part of 3 days migrating the old site to the new. This was no easy task; the image folder alone (on the old site) contained 21,623 items (1.36 GB of data) which I had to download to a Macbook with Windows installed before transfer to my iMac. The images were then imported into iPhoto and exported to Picasa. This resulted in a warning email from BT Broadband re my monthly usage allowance!

Anyway it's done. If you visit the photo gallery you'll find it's really easy to view the archived picture material - instead of clicking through various folders you just have to click slideshow and sit back and enjoy the show. To see results from past years, go to Archives (pre 2010) where you'll find PDF files containing copies of pages from the old site.

I've also updated the site and deleted old material - if anyone has a problem with anything (broken links etc.) please let me know so that I can correct it.
