Because I am rarely by a computer or phone I am (thankfully) assisted by my wife, Kate on the admin side of the business.
For general enquiries you can email Kate on firstname.lastname@example.org
Or if you would like to ask me a specific question that you cannot find the answer to on the website then send me an email: email@example.com
I am out of contact during each working day and most evenings so answer emails at anti-social hours when I can! Please bear in mind that I am often away from home so a response can be several days.
If you have a general enquiry you can call my wife, Kate on 01248 209576 (between 9:00am and 5:00pm)
