Forum Archive

In 2006 we added a 'Forum' to our website to allow us to post news items and for visitors to our website to be able to post their views and comments. By 2014, with the increasing popularity of Twitter and Facebook the Forum was receiving very few posts so we decided to close it.

There were two versions of the Forum, with a relaunch in a new form in December 2008.

Below are messages that appeared on the Forum. Not all the messages or threads are shown here,we have selected those that generated the most interest.

You can see the messages via the links below but you will not be able to respond here
