Time for a rebuild

I cannot believe it's three years since I maintained this site, so time to start over.

  1. Backup - √
  2. Upgrade the CMS - √ (thanks to the team at RoyalWebHosting)
  3. Sort out the errors
  4. Link back to Facebook

 I know that there are pages of errors in the texts about the main firms travelling in Cornwall so I need to improve them and sort them out.  Have you spotted an errors?  If so , let me know.  Please use the "Contact Us" link on the left hand side
