Migration of web site to Joomla3

This web site is based on the Joomla content management system. We will be moving to the latest version of Joomla (Joomla 3) on Monday 6th of June. This is long overdue and necessary to keep the site working in the long run. All userids, bookings, invoices and payments will be transferred and you should be able to use the site as you do at the moment.. You will notice:


* A different colour scheme

* Some changes to the menus and layout


The site will be closed for a few hours on the 6th while the migration takes place.


It is a significant change and it is not possible to test all aspects of the system before migration. So please be tolerant if there are any problems in the days immediately following the migration.
