Our long-standing webmaster Jeremy Cooper has for sometime expressed his wish to ‘retire’ from this role. Jeremy has been with CLASP since it evolved from the Friends of the Upper Nene Project in about 2002, which in turn was a spin off from the Whitehall project.

If you wish to contact Tim, including having items posted on the website, please use the following email address:-

Thank you to all who helped make the evening such a success, not least the members of Harpole Heritage Society for the cakes and drinks.
