This site has been our community's little corner of the interweb, our little piece of digital cyberspace. All the content has been provided by our community, by you. Without you, there would be no site, no stories, no pictures. For all your contributions, I'm so very grateful but all good relationships invariably come to an end. Regrettably, after maintaining this site for over 11 years, I am no longer in a position to continue to do so.

The site will remain visible for a while after today but will no longer accept new content. Without new content it will gradually lose its relevance and decay. A backup of the site content will be taken so that the content is not lost.

I would like to pass my thanks to every single one of you that has contributed, over the years, to make this site such a valuable resource for our community.

One has to be careful when naming names lest someone gets offended by an omission, but I'd like to pass on my sincerest thanks to Pete, Geoff, Sally, Dot, Ricky, Pete Byers, Reg Rush, Len Woodhead, Mary Haslam, Stuart Rogerson, Margaret Amos and the many, many others who've contributed over the years, who've chosen to share their stories, their pictures, their memories, who've made it all worthwhile.

Farewell.

Jeff
