Very nice, Peter.

Simple, easy to see exactly what you need to see with no faffing.
I'm very impressed. I bet it wasn't easy managing that. ;)

I wish all websites were so logical.
Cheers, Sue (M)

Hi ,
            many thanks to you both , my intent was to produce exactly what Sue has mentioned , I can only take credit for the text and images though the site was built by a friend who listened to what I wanted and made it happen.

cheers ,

Peter.

Hi ,
             Thanks, mobile function works well I think and with screen expansion you can zoom in very well on the glasses,

cheers ,

Peter.

I agree that it is a good site to use.

Clean, crisp, no nonsense, easy to navigate. Just the way my former "quality assurance / quality control" head used to think.

But maybe a touch more contrast between the subtle greys and the lettering would help my eyes out. :)
