About this Site

The original site was built and maintained by Gary Nuttall, one of the club's instructor team, and the club is very grateful for the time and effort that Gary gave to this cause. However, Gary moved away from the area with his job and the site, although still sitting in cyberspace was well out of date.

Martin Reynolds was keen to ensure that the club had an active presence on the internet to hopefully introduce people to the sport of gliding and to inform potential members. It could also help keep the current membership, plus old members and friends, informed about the goings on in the club.

Having searched around at various web hosting companies, the best solution and cost effective package was provided by ukhost4u.com. The domain name was also purchased and registered through them. Although he had a basic knowledge of HTML, to save time and get the site up and running he used Microsoft's Frontpage 2002 to build the site. His hopes were to get a team of members to take on the responsibility of maintaining, updating, expanding and improving the site.

Due to work commitments he have handed over the update and re-design of this site to Darren Moloney. A past member, he is a professional web designer - blantant plug: All Things Web

He has high hopes for the site with increased levels of traffic,online database functionality and member logins etc

Dave Mansfield has now taken over from Darren and has made a few adjustments to the menu bar, and tries hard to keep the Site as up to date as possible
