Why has our website suddenly become much smaller and completely changed in appearance?

It is because the company hosting our website decided to close that part of their business and we had to find a new hosting provider. We were using quite old software to create our website, whereas our current provider has much more modern software and we encountered some difficulties during the transition. Therefore the decision was made to switch immediately to using the software offered by our new provider. This means we have to rebuild the website.

Hopefully it will not take too long before we are rebuilt again and with the addition of some new features to enhance your experience of our website.

If you would like to contact us, you can still use twovalleysweb@gmail.com.
