Change is coming!
Various folk have been beavering away in the background over the last few months creating the DCA's brand new website. We've finally reached the point where we are ready to switch over. You will find the current DCA website goes offline for a while sometime in the next few days. When it comes back online, hopefully it'll be our new site.
The new site gives us much more flexibility with updating content, including news items, access updates, training workshops, and whatever else we want. The officers will all be able to access the site to generate updates, instead of relying on one very busy webmaster!
Do let us know if you spot any typos or dead links. We hope you like the new site.
