Centre Opening NEWS

We re-opened our Research Centre last April and our opening times are 10:00am to 4:00pm on a Tuesday and a Friday. However it is no longer necessary to book an appointment.

Publication Update

Owing to increases in our Printers costs it has been necessary for us to increase the pricing of our books effective from 1st April.

An updated Publication List (April 2022) are available on the Downloads page of the RESOURCES menu.

If you are ordering by Mail Order please ensure you are using the latest Publication List and Order Form (April 2022).

However, our Online Shop is available for the purchase of PDFs and Printed versions of most of our publications and Newsletters, and you can pay for them using PayPal or Credit/Debit Card.
