Regular visitors will have noticed that the GF homepage hasn't been updated for a few days. At the moment I'm back in Sheffield as my father is in the Northern General Hospital here. I'm doing some work but as I said earlier there would be some disruption. The record snowfalls and cold, plus having to use unfamiliar editing & email software haven't particularily helped. Feel free to send your own messages and I'll post them en-masse. There are one or two job listings also set to go live in the employment section over the weekend. Ian

NAME: Graham Dugdale
MESSAGE: As I'm not a great user of Facebook I would like to use this vastly superior site to say hello to all the ex SunCity staff who went to the re-union in Blackpool . It was great to see everyone again. Quite amazing that no-one had put on weight or looked older than when I last saw them. As special thanks to Steve and Sue for everything. Hope to see you all again next year.
