  3. PLEASE NOTE
    It is our intention to do some routine maintenance in the late afternoon/early evening of Saturday 20th January. For the most part, this will not affect the running of the site, but there is a very small possibility that things may run a little slower for short periods of time. Should this be the case, please bear with us and normal service will be resumed as quickly as possible.
    Please be assured that this maintenance is NOT being done by an automatic process, and is being done manually by the staff team, who will take all steps necessary to prevent slow-downs or disruption.
    Thank you in advance for your understanding.

                  Now I know how the GC staff make their Hob Nobs and tea! :snorky:

                  Do we need to explain the Hob Nobs and tea part to newer members? :dunno:

                              @Sandy Ground Do you remember doing this word?

                              For some reason the symbol 'mouth' is not showing at the end of the word. Instead it's been crossed out!
