Built on a WordPress foundation the new website is responsive, simple to update, includes an online booking system, secure participants area, and features professionally taken photography.

Jonathan tells me you have been a pleasure to work with and we are all extremely pleased with the results. It will also be very helpful to be able to maintain our site more easily in future. Thanks again and we look forward to your continuing support.
