HELP needed on our website:

We are at risk: should our web site technician become ill or unavailable for any reason our website could stagnate.

Therefore we are still looking for an additional (voluntary) member to work with our web technician and help with the web site maintenance and development.  The current technician is happy to act as a mentor to gradually hand over the reins.  This is a superb opportunity for someone to develop and extend his or her IT skills.  He or she could learn how to develop windows based computer web applications that use a database.

If you are interested contact Pete Gilbert (email: gilbertp@outlook.com) or phone 07890 032041.
