We are the website team!



We are the website team, Martin (to the left) and Samzu (to the right). We run it a monthly magazine publishing on the 1st of the month, but there is a regular updating as things come in. We have taught ourselves how to create and run the website. We use  WordPress for the site, Google Docs to hold the basic information and YouTube to hold videos and slideshows.  Using these central (and free) servers means that it is very easy to work remotely. We would welcome others to join the team. We  will happily show you how we do it and very much welcome  your ideas to develop the site. Interested? Contact us on sslso.org.uk.
