Conway Club Web SIte
I’ve completely rebuilt the club website using new software (Wordpress) although the bulk of the content is still broadly the same. A lot of work but I hope you think it looks much better, particularly the proper drop down menus. It has a Conway family format so the Friends and Club sites look similar. My next job is to revamp the main site but that is going to be many many weeks of work.

The new site includes a full online shop so you can now buy from anywhere in the world using bank transfer or any card and any currency. There are lots of new things on sale and you can also buy your Teaser Club and Conway Club subscriptions online. I’ve added new security software so back issues if all the (new) The Cadet magazines are now online. The password is in the new issue you should receive any day now.
