Jenny Brien, our webmaster has recent undergone major surgery and is presently convalescing. I am sure you will all join the committee in wishing her a full and speedy recovery. Jenny reports she is doing fine, but her email account is being plagued by spam and asks that anyone emailing her put "FIGUK" in the subject header. She has a dial-up connection and her spam filter will delete anything it does not recognise without downloading it.
