I am still very busy trying to sort out the mess we have found ourselves in with the new website and I am trying to get myself up-to-speed with the format it has been constructed in. The NW donated £2000 to Central funds last month which has cleared the NW account out and I have closed it down as we were getting a terrible service from RBS.

I will manage the NW accounts on a cash basis for now.
Tony Cox, NW Regional Rep.
