Website improvements
We are launching a number of improvements to the web site and we will continue to update further pages over the next few weeks. - The Sales and Wants page has been redesigned with new main page plus much improved entry and update pages. - Some significant style changes are being rolled out including use of coloured buttons and new format for data display. - We have also merged Technical and Publications on the main menu and moved contacting pages to about us as a number of users have reported problems when using smaller screens. - We hope you will like these changes but welcome feedback. -

Chairman steps down (7th March)
Mike Bragg has informed us that he wishes to step down as Guild Chairman due to pressures of personal and family health. We thank Mike for his service to the Guild. Tommy Day, the Vice-Chairman, will act as Guild chairman until the AGM in August. With the help of his team, he will continue to oversee the activities of the Technical Committee. His other duties with the IT team and the Forum Moderators will be performed by Geoff Goddin. These changes are effective immediately. Management Committee

ABC Gears extended closure
ABC Gears will be closed for the Christmas period from 20th December 2019 and we will be taking this opportunity for an extended holiday returning on the 18th May 2020.... We will not be able to return emails or phone calls during this period so please don't expect one.. We appreciate your understanding. For those that have placed orders we are endeavouring to get them out prior to Christmas or immediately after. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause but as you all know due to Karens health we have decided to do this whilst we have the chance. In the meantime we both wish you a very Merry Christmas and a prosperous and Happy New Year. Karen & Brian
