Newsletter: June 2005

Dave, Ange and JessHi Everyone,

The big news for us in May was the arrival of Dave and Ange's baby daughter Jessica. This has obviously meant that a few jobs have been re-prioritised and we realise that a number of people are still waiting for replies to emails. We're sorry for the delay but we hope to be back on track before too long.
