Well it's been a bit of a slog but the Site Maintenance should now be complete, I hope. Over 2,000 pages is a lot to keep up with. You probably won't notice the difference but the site should now look more consistent throughout, should load correctly on all Desktops and Browsers, and should work better on Tablets and Phones too. Also all the Broken External Links should now be corrected or removed. Please let me know if you find any that I've missed though, and if you spot anything weird on the site that I've broken during all this do let me know. Thanks, Matthew.
