The Events calendar is back..

We are pleased to announce the return of the website events calendar. The old one had to be removed as it was unstable.

We’re experimenting on how best to present events, and your feedback would be welcome.

The calendar summary is half way down the sidebar on the right-hand side of most pages on the website. The full calendar page can be reached via the “News and events” dropdown menu at the top of each website page. A direct link is HERE.

Clicking on an event in the calendar will show a pop up about it. You may need to “See more details” to find a clickable link for full details, where we have them. Other events have clickable links in the pop up itself .

It’s a Google calendar and therefore links to Google maps.

Unfortunately, those maps do not yet show all our local places, so we are trying to get them included.

Our thanks to webmaster Richard for setting up the new calendar.

Any comments please to [email protected] or via the comment box below. Thank you.
