Website Update

You may have noticed some changes to our website. The last major upgrade was back in 2016! Needless to say, the WordPress platform was severely out of date and needed to be brought up to 2021 standards. We are happy to announce that we recently undertook a major upgrade and are pleased with the new look and functionality of the website. We will continue to make small changes and tweaks over the coming weeks.

Digital Archive

We are creating a digital archive of all CSFS material. If you have relevant photos and/or content that you would like to share please get in touch with us.
