What are we aiming for? Obviously a thriving community, a vibrant website and exciting events, but our vision can extend a lot wider.

I’m overjoyed that we’re now open for business after many months of diligent work alongside the developers and delighted to say that we are now starting our testing programme this week. The next phase of the journey begins here, on this site.

Posting links (external or internal) on Campfire is different to how you post links on Facebook.

You don't have to delete the URL on Campfire; the code does it for you!
