Thank you for browsing this far. I hope you find the site useful.

 

I’ll be adding a few extras to HELIX over coming months but, for the time being, if you’d like to see what the site looked like in October 2011, when it was hosted on a free platform known as Beehive, then click here. If I had the time, I would create an updated version of the old site but involvement in other projects, such as the Hadleigh & Thundersley Community Archive, currently precludes that happening.
