Hi John!

Henry Deadfield was originally supposed to be used for the Orphan Trail, but it seems nobody wanted him. I've removed the graphic, so he is all yours :)

Many thanks for the invitation to join the Staffordshire team. Can I put it on hold for a while as I have a few problems and would not be able to give it my best. I am already a member of the Cornwall team and have made a few suggestions but again not really hand's on

Hi John,

I haven’t heard back from you about the United Kingdom Project breaking up into the individual country-level projects of England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland. I hope all is well with you. I assume you don’t wish to join any of them at present, and will go ahead and remove the United Kingdom badge. If you wish to join England, Scotland, Wales or Ireland in the future, you would be most welcome to do so via the respective G2G sign-up post.

Many thanks for all your contributions,

Susie :-)
