This is quite a large and complex site, and we realise that not everyone has hours to spare or cheap online access. (We have neither of those things!
Some updates are needed still but we are gradually working on this, so bear with us please.
We've tried to anticipate your questions, so if you want to know more about a particular aspect of our life here just click on the appropriate sub-heading and all will be revealed - you might call this site a FAQ with attitude...
If you are unsure where to look first or are seeking particular information, ourSite Map may be able to help, as it lists the contents of each category.
You will find the site has been divided up into appropriate categories as outlined below.
