News bulletin

The new version of the SAMPE UK and Ireland Chapter website is being uploaded this weekend. During this period, there may be brief periods where some webpages are missing, and a number of minor changes, corrections and updates take place.

Please be patient until after Monday 12th February, but if there are any mistakes or problems after that time, I would be grateful for feedback, so I can put those things right.
