Apologies for the Lack of Communication

Hi All,

Just a quick apology from myself, Lewis, as I have neglected to reply to the emails in the inbox. I thought I have set it up to redirect them to my personal account, but I did not. I, therefore, did not think we had any.

I am in the process of contacting everyone now. We hope to see some new faces in September.
