New Look Website

Our webmaster has been busy and a new look website has been established. The aim of the site will be the same a the last one – to keep our members and interested visitors up to date with club events, information on how to join, guild history and more.

We’re also working on adding more photography to the new website and this new design will allow for that. Your feedback and comments on the changes are most welcome.
