Out and About
This section will keep you informed about the work that is being carried out on this site, with details about current developments as well as information about future work. In the unlikely event of us needing to take the site “off-air” for a short period, advance notice will be posted here.
The forum has now been transferred into the site software, and is available via a link in the main menu to the left. If you had a forum user account prior to this transfer please follow these instructions to activate your account on the new forum software.
Now this transfer is complete it means there is a single log-in for this site and the forum (and also for other affiliated sites in the future). If you don’t have a user account already, we strongly recommend you register and log in to whichever bit of the site interests you most. Your browser should give you the option to remember your user name and password, so once you’re logged in, you remain logged in (no need to scratch your head remembering your umpteenth password). If you log in via this page you’ll then see a personalised welcome message below the banner, plus your private message count and a time display.
There will be certain bits of the site, such as contact lists for example, that will only be available to logged-in users. By ensuring users are real human beings, and not spammers or bots, we can protect personal information whilst remaining a useful village facility. You can still remain anonymous of course, if you wish, it’s just a valid email address that we need to activate your account.
We are continuing to populate the open sections of the site, but please bear with us. We are volunteers, and these things do take time. Work is also ongoing on the sections of the site which are presently closed. The next section to open will be the History section.
Any suggestions for additional content, please do contact us.
