Finally I have uploaded the revised website, which I have spent many months inputting into a revised version of Serif WebPlus software.
Having contemplated the best means of keeping the website up to date, I made the decision that Twitter is the way forward! @newbonfh went live on Saturday 13 December. It would be great to have as many followers as possible, so that Newbon enthusiasts are able to keep up to date with discoveries.
