Normal service is now resumed

Normal service is now resumed

I am sorry if you were inconvenienced by yesterday’s lengthy outage. I installed some third-party software which seems to have caused some collateral damage, beyond the help of a backup to fix. Removing the software was relatively easy; finding and fixing the unexpected alterations was not. Anyway, after extensive testing, I think normal service is now resumed.

A Mystery Solved

A Mystery Solved

These pictures are details from an old Toye, Kenning and Spencer brochure from way back in 1999. I imagine that many of the items are no longer available. Certainly, Toye and Kenning would no longer honour these prices! The brochure came to me courtesy of Brother John Kearns (Shrewsbury Circle), who got it from Brother Peter Grannell (Stoke-on-Trent Circle), who inherited it from our late Brother Keith Campbell. I have had several enquiries recently about how to identify the various ribbons and medallions to which we Catenians are partial, so this might help.

Here is a link to the full brochure

It’s good to share

It’s good to share

If you have Facebook or Twitter accounts, you will have recognised the little icons that pop up on the left-hand side of most of the pages on this site. They are there in case you want to share what you are reading with your Facebook or Twitter friends.

If you use a different social network and would like to share to that one, let me know — use the Contact page — and I will try to sort it.

Do remember that, unlike our previous website, this one is public — so think carefully before you post or share.

New website launches!

New website launches!

The new Province 6 website launches today! If you have been using the previous version you may need to update your links, but hopefully you have arrived here without any problems. The new site is at catenians-province6.org (that’s all you need to type in)

The site is by no means complete yet: some of the old content had to go because of GDPR and some because the new site is a public one, but there is lots of new content in the pipeline. Your ideas are always welcome too — just use the site’s contact form to send me your suggestions for new pages or other content. Perhaps the best feature of the new site is that it is not all down to the webmaster! Very soon, every Catenian Circle in Province 6 will be able to contribute its own news, stories, photos, videos, etc. I shall post a simple ‘How To’ video on here over the weekend, so look out for that and start thinking about your first posts.

UPDATE: Sorry about the non-appearance of the ‘How To’ video: I am re-building the Circle pages so as to make them simpler to keep up-to-date. Once that’s finished I will upload the video.
