PLEASE NOTE: due to central support imposing draconian limits on the number of photos we can hold on our site in total and on individual pages, we have had to remove all photos older than 1 year and ensure that any single page does not have more than 25 photos. This particularly affects the Photography group.

Please continue to provide photos for review as usual. They will be held and stored for future use but only a selection can be shown on the website.

Some external links to videos and pdfs are retained.

If you wish to retrieve any photos not available on this site, please contact Alan Aldridge at Webmaster email link. Thank you.
