The 2010/11 Awards kick off with new Nominations coming in...

I just got back from my holidays in the Rocky Mountains & it seems I've brought the snow back with me. Anyway, a few people over the last year have mentioned they found the previous colours difficult to read, so, we're back to basics for this year!

Jaguar Car weekend!

Some of you may remember that for the Charity Auction at the Award Ceremony last year, Jaguar Cars very kindly donated to us a 'Jaguar Car Weekend', which allowed the winning bidder to drive around in a beautiful Jag! The winning bidder was our great friend and supporter, Sandy Auden - and she's kindly sent us this account of her exciting experience!
