New YCBA website
During this difficult time, it gives me great pleasure to be able to bring to you a major item of positive news, this being that we are to launch our newly designed YCBA website on the 1st July 2020.
It would be extremely remiss of me not to mention the superb work that has gone into our current website that has served us well for the last decade. Rob Turner was our webmaster from 1999 and in 2010 he worked with Lesley Blanchard to totally redesign our site into its present familiar green thematic. Subsequent work to administer, maintain and improve our site to present time has continued to be through the efforts of this volunteer team. Without their commitment to getting results/news/committee meetings/ calendar and numerous other activities that display on the website, all of us would be far less informed. Rob very sadly passed away last year and Lesley has since been steadfast in her solo effort to keep our website current. So, I am sure you would all like to join me in expressing our sincere thanks to both Rob and Lesley for all their hard work and dedication over the years.
We are launching our new 2020 design that is now written in WordPress, the most popular website builder software, which makes it easier to update the site and share the design workload. We have changed the order of the website and you may initially need to familiarise yourself with the new formats. We hope that you find it both accessible and user friendly and we welcome your comments and suggestions for further design improvement.
I hope you are keeping safe and well and let us look forward to the time when we can get back to ‘normal’, whatever that may look like!
