Our apologies go to all those loyal grough readers who had trouble accessing site earlier today.

This was caused by the total failure of the server which hosts the site. The poor thing is now in pieces and receiving tender loving care from people who know about these things. In the meantime, grough has moved to a super, duper new server and should now run trouble-free (Fingers and everything else crossed – Ed). 

If you had difficulty contacting us by email, please try again: the system should now be up and running. You can also contact us by using the comment boxes at the end of each story (as well as sharing your views with other users). If you want us to email you, please make sure you include your email address.

We hope you've made the best of the Easter weather to get outdoors and hope you've had chance to burn off all the calories from the chocolate eggs.
