This website project was launched in April 2010. It is entirely run by a very small group of volunteers with the generous startup help of the Heritage Lottery Fund.

We were funded by HLF up to Nov 2012 and thereafter on a very modest maintenance level for another several years. After 2017 we are entirely dependent on sponsorship.

We need several hundred pounds a year to maintain the site and we need to find a lump sum of two thousand pounds around 2017/20 to migrate the site to WordPress which will make it more durable into the future (see Downloads document at foot of page which explains the need).

Sponsorship or donations, however small, are all gratefully received.  

Anyone wishing to make a donation can do so via the PayPal link below:
