     Technical Site Report
The website is now using PHP, with pages being "custom built and tested" by the web server prior to them  being sent to you. This allows us to render more accurately, and make changes to portions of the site without duplicating  effort on a series of pages - making a "clever" web site that is easier for the contibutors to update. If you find any broken or missing pages please send an e-mail to
Spring cleaning for 2014 included the use of CS3 "transparent colours"
The majority of the pages that were available on the site (in past years) have been "restored and cleaned" but some will have "moved to a different place" within the address space.

On this site, for example, we use background:rgba(240,240,100,0.5); to generate a transparent coloured background.

PHP is being used to provide the new navigation buttons, with a direct link to the Parish Council pages which are externally hosted. As of 13th Jan 2013 the majority of core pages are available in PHP form.

If a user hovers on the button (on the Churches page) associated topics are revealed (like an expanding accordion).
