  • New website undergoing testing

    NRTF's touring scheme board members have been asked to test the site.  Some things are working really well, some are still not quite right.  I am really pleased tho by the comments that I have received so far on the look and feel ot the public face of the site.  Members seem to find it easy to navigate.  There is still some way to go but we are getting there. Supercool Design are doing a great job.
