    Thanks for your welcome Adrian I must say I am having great difficulty. Navigating this website it does not seem to recognise my my password or username You will have to excuse my grammar as I dictate into my Samsung as I can't really type with my fingers. As I say, I think this is probably a great organisation but the website is just gobbledygook to me. Maybe you could try to respond to me and I can see how I take it from there. all the best.

    Hi @macbanana57. I hope you receive this reply okay.
    Thank you for your feedback, it's really helpful to know how accessible parts of the website are. Besides the issues with signing in, would you be able to expand on what difficulties you're having with it so I can refer this to our tech team.

    The problem seems to be with my Hotmail email / And my Yahoo email.
    When I try to use Hotmail It seems to be rejected. Its not so with  with yahoo.co.uk.If I create a password for Hotmail It will say another one of your accounts already has this password and so rejects it . And vice versa using yahoo. It's driving me nuts....
