        Really just wanted to apologise for not updating the blog much this year. With so many different forms of social media available it seems this one has taken the back seat. I do find it one of the more difficult to get from it what I want. Also we seem to be run off our feet recently & taking enough pictures or videos to make a entry just has not happened. I hope to have something up next month of something we are going to make very shortly. I do not just want to put up lots of words like now! every week or month because I think there are so many companies doing that it seems pointless. Also it sounds bad but I do not actually read blogs myself so my interest in them is not at the level it should be to make this a good one.
It has been put to me that we should employ a social media company to look after our accounts but you still have to supply the material and in my humble opinion it all becomes same old same, nothing from heart etc. Also you would not get any of my bad spelling!

Kind regards
Phil Blackwell
