February update

February update
There’s been a lot of work going on behind the scenes for the past few months and a number of the North East Lincolnshire based Community Websites are nearly ready to unleash on the general public. In preparation the main www.inandaround.org.uk website has been simplified, tidied and redesigned.  It’s far from perfect but at least visitors will now find a website that makes sense! At the...
