In my last posting, I mentioned MPAC. It really is a great resource which I would like more people to know about. I visited there a while ago, had a look round and met some of the staff. They’re a helpful, knowledgeable and dedicated group.
I thought the best (i.e. less work for me) way for me to tell you more is simply to paste the info from their web homepage here…
