Some observant members may have noticed the scrolling news at the top of the side-bar menu. This will allow me to communicate short notices, especially if there are any planned outages for maintenance updates etc. Currently displaying our latest recruits.

Look upon it a a localised tweet or for vintage fans the old ticker tape  🙂

Yes, a useful feature adding a "live" kind of feel for news/info.

And I always though it was called a marquee......... Or is that something else? I seem to recall it was a term used in connection with a very early computer I once owned - Spectrum, Commodore 64, Commodore 600, or some such. Very handy in the dentists waiting room.

"All patient appointments are running 15 minutes late......All patient appointments are running 15 minutes late......All patient appointments are running 15 minutes late......All patient appointments are running 15 minutes late......"

That sort of thing, scrolling across the screen.
