Chairman's Welcome To The Website

Jan 27 2016 News >> Latest News

Welcome to our new website!

Whilst we have discussed (and agreed!) the need for a website for a long time now, it is only since Tony Stephenson joined our Management Committee that real progress has been made. We are now equipped with an extremely powerful tool to reach out and make contact with members past, present and future.

Tony is now our Webmaster and will keep it updated and add articles, information on meetings and a host of other items likely to be of interest to Friends. He has been supported in his efforts by MGH Consultants who have designed the site and arranged for us to have our own dedicated web address at

I hope that you find it convenient to use and will enjoy the news that we are now able to bring to you so much more easily than before.

We are also launching our new Facebook Page and our new Twitter Account @FriendsofDiscov so please sign up to follow us.
