Seasons Greetings 

The Webteam have been busy throughout 2017 looking after and making changes to this Community Website.  We have just introduced a new facility – a link to the Twitter account @RMHub (see below) – which we hope will prove interesting.  We also have plans for more changes in 2018.  Thank you all for visiting the site and making it such an important part of R&M Communications.

We wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
