Technical problems with our website

Please note that we are currently experiencing some technical problems and have not been able to upload items to our website on a regular basis. This has affected the weekly bulletin, hence there was no bulletin for the week ending 5 November. We hope the problem will be rectified shortly but appreciate your understanding in the meantime.
