What does your computer do?  Ours are set to perform useful tasks on those occasions when they are not being used.  We have machines running both of the voluntary programmes listed below, why not check them out.

The Volunteer Your PC program lets you make a real difference without donating money or your time with the tool that you are using to view this site right now - your home PC.
In the Volunteer Your PC program, your computer can join tens of thousands of other PCs across the Internet each working on a small part of a large problem simultaneously. You can help one or more public good projects. To participate, simply download a very small, non-invasive software program that works like a screen saver: It runs when your computer isn't being used, and processes projects—until you need the power.

And now for some sites which we think may be of interest, if you know of any which you find interesting, let us know, we will be happy to put a link on the site.  

First of all, a good information site, will give you telephone numbers and a great deal of other information, a great starting point to find that long lost friend or relative. For a great search engine, try a real search engine unlike some 'directories' which require payment to become listed. offers a neat and simple way of looking up your MP and sending him or her an instant message, even if the backward blighter is not yet on e-mail. (Yes I know Nigel is on the 'net, his details can be found on the 'What's New' page).  Want to know more about your area? Try

 Lessons from the movies.......

17. When it appears that you have killed the monster, *never* check to see if it's really dead.

16. If your companions suddenly begin to exhibit uncharacteristic behavior such as hissing, fascination for blood, glowing eyes, increasing hairiness, and so on, get away from them as fast as possible.

15. Do not search the basement, especially if the power has just gone out.

14. Beware of strangers bearing tools such as chainsaws, staple guns, hedge trimmers, electric carving knives, combines, lawnmowers, butane torches, soldering irons, band saws, or any device made from deceased companions.

13. If appliances start operating by themselves, move out.

12. Stay away from certain geographical locations, some of which are listed here: Amityville, Elm Street, Transylvania, Nilbog (you're in trouble if you recognize this one), the Bermuda Triangle, or any small town in Maine. And of course, our very own Pendle Hill......

11. If your children speak to you in Latin or any other language which they should not know or if they speak to you using a voice which is other than their own, shoot them immediately. It will save you a lot of grief in the long run. NOTE: It will probably take several hundred rounds to kill them, so be prepared!

10. If you're running from the monster, expect to trip or fall down at least twice, more if you are of the female persuasion. Also note that, despite the fact that you are running and the monster is merely shambling along, it's still moving fast enough to catch up with you.

9. When you have the benefit of numbers, *never* pair off and go it alone.

8. Do not take *anything* from the dead.

7. As a general rule, don't solve puzzles that open portals to Hell.

6. Don't fool with recombinant DNA technology unless you're sure you know what you are doing.

5. Never stand in, on, above, below, beside, or anywhere near a grave, tomb, crypt, mausoleum, or other house of the dead.

4. Never read a book of demon summoning aloud, even as a joke.

3. If your car runs out of gas at night, do not go to the nearby deserted-looking house to phone for help.

2. If you're searching for something which caused a noise and find out that it's just the cat, *leave the room immediately if you value your life.*

and last but not least...

1. If you find a town which looks deserted (Clitheroe on a Tuesday night?), it's probably for a reason. Take the hint and stay away!
