Cookies

Cookies and 'requests' are small text files that are sent to your web browser by websites that you visit. They are used to store data temporarily on your computer. Most web browsers allow you to manage most types of cookies through your browser settings.

Generally, cookies come in two types: 'session' cookies that are removed automatically after the browsing session ends; and 'persistant' cookies that remain on your computer until they reach an expiry date or they are removed manually.

Without cookies, some features of this website will not function.

This website uses two session cookies, one for the security of the session (if this is blocked then you will not be able to log in to the members' area) and one to record your acknowledgement of cookies for the duration of the session.

The third party Twitter feed uses two session cookies or 'widgets', if these are blocked the twitter feed will be disabled.
