The addition of the official Google API Key for the maps on the tower page should allow this to work again.

Some tidying up of formats and loose ends should help with the appearance of tables.

Archive copies of In Touch have now all been scanned and converted to pdf format so they can all be accessed via the Newsletters tab.

This has made an opportunity to show the branch's entry in the ODG Annual Report.

A positive figure shows that the bell is sharp, a negative figure shows that it is flat. There are 100 cents between notes on the scale.
