Site safety

The facility for visitors to this site to leave comments is switched OFF, which makes it easier to keep it safe.        The site became a WordPress blog in November 2013.        It benefits from the rich choice of security plug-ins available.       The development of the WordPress core system and plugins is an on-going process, and they are regularly updated.

You can leave comments on our Facebook or Twitter  pages.        See Contact us for our email address.
