If it’s news you're looking for, speak to Ann.

Fun fact: Ann actually thinks she’s in charge of keeping secrets, but we know that would be like appointing a fox as a social worker to vulnerable chickens.

What is the World Wide Web?

At last! We’re edging closer to the day that our website can finally go live! Tim Berners-Lee has finally proposed a system where people can use the internet to create “sites” that can be visited by typing in a specific “domain name”.

Obviously we’ve made a few tweaks to our site since its original inception, we’re no longer live-blogging local executions, and we’ve also lifted the ban on women in trousers using the website - just a couple of touches to bring us up to date with the modern era.

So, it won’t be long now until the much-anticipated launch! It’s only been 211 years in the making so far!
