Hello out there and best wishes for 2013 everyone! Our regular visitors will have noticed it’s been a very quiet time here at GDU.

So I’ve been getting updates on email and Facebook from friends back in the UK and the general consensus of opinion seems to be that the snow was great over Christmas however everyone is kind of getting ‘over it’ now.
