Gremlins Ahoy

Update 1

As the result of the current MICROSOFT host closing the service that we have been using to write and host our site we are having to rewrite, code and relocate our website with a new ISP.

You will be asking how this will affect you…

First, here at Jon Bond Game Angling it is very much business as usual. You can conatct me by all the usual means – post, telephone and/or email – details are on the Contact Us page at http://www.jonbondgameangling.co.uk

Second, in rewriting and coding the website we are expecting a few gremlins, please bear with us as we complete this processover the next 4-6 weeks.

I thank you for your understanding and support ias I find my way out of the techie maze. I like you prefer fishing…

Tight Lines!
