Administration of this website

I believe that the original website was generated sometime during 1999. Jacob Kahn carried this work through from it's inception until mid September 2003 when I (Dave Cushman) took over responsibility for website administration.

I am a member of GBBG and have been for several years, but as I live in the UK, my input into group activities has been limited. However, as I do a considerable amount of webwork, it is sensible that I contribute in this manner.

Any errors, broken links or other defects should be reported to me via the Email button provided at right. Any ideas for the future development of this website should also directed to me and I will liaise with the committee on suitability.

Website items required  is a jotting space for notes or desirable items that will help to flesh out this website. Should you have such items please use the 'Email Dave' button above.
