There has been a problem with emails. This has now been rectified.

Our sincere apologies if you have not had a reply. The emails are being passed to the persons who will have the most knowledge, or interest, in what you have sent or are enquiring about.

If you have still not had a reply, please make us aware of it.

We were unaware that there was a problem. It was only when somebody trying to find a way to contact us, that it was drawn to our attention, via the library.

Please feel free to drop and an visit, or join, us. Have a tea or coffee and a chat.
