Website News

Over the coming weeks we’re planning to upgrade our web hosting by moving the Gaddesden Society website to a different host. Although this shouldn’t cause any interruption, there’s always the possibility that there will be a glitch in the site’s availability or its links, despite our best intentions. We’ll post more specific information when we have it.
