I understand from the SRGC forum that Mike & Pearl Dale , the show secretaries, were badly affected by the recent flooding in the NE of England and that alternative arrangements are being made for entries to be phoned in. Jim, if your 'listening' can you confirm what people should do.

There is an announcement on the Stop-Press which you should be able to see now. It hasn't been working for the last few days - I've been making some big changes to the website behind the scenes in preparation for a new look and the stop-press fell by the wayside.

I am sure Mike and Pearl have all our sympathy and best wishes.  They certainly have ours as we spent Sunday mopping up water in our own kitchen and know in a very small way how they feel.  For those of you who know I do all my own plumbing, it wasn't a plumbing failure - thank goodness, I'd never have lived it down!  We have a water filter for drinking water and the filter cylinder under the sink split suddenly during the night.

To confirm the arrangements:

Alan Newton has volunteered to take the entries and they should be phoned to him:
