View the Tour to see what the Site should look like
Every page has the same navigation buttons on the left; you do NOT need to keep going back to the HOME page. If you 'lose' the buttons when scrolling down a page, just click on an empty space in the left inch of the page to return to the top. Some of the buttons display a sub menu when clicked, revealing further selections. These sub menus will obscure some of the buttons; this is normal and the menu only displays as long as the mouse cursor remains over it. Look in SITE MAP for a full summary.
Here is a brief summary of the button functions....
HOME takes you to the site's main introduction and notice board.

ADMIN opens a sub menu which lets you CONTACT ADMIN (including facilities to register your details on the web site), view Frequently Asked Questions (and ask questions), view/sign the GUEST BOOK, search the site, look at the Site Map, view the EVENTS calendar, submit suggestions, go to the NOTICE BOARD and view the LINKS TO OTHER SITES page.
