Always the way isn't it?

Like I said earlier its a good idea and I'm pleased with those additions.

I can see why you'd want to have something to show before mentioning
it but I wonder why this deserves a separate team.

If this was to become a separate web page I understand but as a subset
of pages on then I'd have to ask what the longer term
objective for this project is?  You'd also need to appreciate that
anyone could change your material.

That said, Matthew East and I have been looking at changes to the
front page of HUC so we recognise there's a need to change.
