Okay up until now we've been looking at cleaning up the old site so that
people can find more information more easily about the organisation.

In terms of turning the site into a fully fledged
News/Information/Social Networking site, we do have plans for
introducing several features, however they require people who are able
to dedicate the time to making these things happen, so if you're willing
to help out that would be great :)
