Delay in posting new photographs
Added on 21 December 2010 at 07:51 by Jim
Apologies to anyone who has sent photographs over the last few months, they have been received and safely stored along with the emailed information, but you will have noticed that they haven't been posted on the website yet and there is a considerable backlog which I am hoping to work on in the next few months. The delay has been due to an ongoing dispute with my service provider (TalkTalk) and a fault which took nearly seven months to rectify (a simple 15 minute visit from an engineer!). I have even involved Trading Standards, OFCOM and my MP, and I am pressing for this company's license to trade to be revoked.....it's that serious! Anyway, hopefully all will be back to normal before too much longer, and in the meantime, a very happy Christmas and here's wishing you a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year when that arrives.

Further details can be obtained from Bill Lawson (whose email address can be found amongst "Contributors" and associated with comments connected to Lawson related photographs).
Apologies for the delay in adding photographs

Just a brief note to apologise for the delay in adding new photographs, either sent by email or left at Alford Heritage Centre for scanning, I'm having a few problems with my rather old but, until now, fairly reliable computer. Like me, it's having a few problems with its memory, so until I can sort this out a bit of a log jam has built up......doh!
