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

 

The HELIX website was launched in March 2006 and until October 2011 was hosted on a free platform known as Beehive, provided by the owners of the Echo newspaper. If you’d like to see what the site looked like in October 2011, when the Beehive platform was withdrawn, then click here. After the Beehive platform was withdrawn, the site was hosted for eighteen months on Dropbox but from April 2013 it has been hosted in the conventional way (currently with Tsohost). 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.
