Change of address for this website.

January 10, 2014

Hello all,

Happy New Year!

Just to say that from Sunday 12th January this website will no longer be available as Instead you will find it under the address The reason for this change is that after a few happy years at Canniesburn we have moved away.  The domain name has come up for renewal and I feel I don’t want to continue paying for it since we have moved away.

Ideally I would like someone or several people from Canniesburn to take over the running of the website/blog – maybe someone from the residents committee? I would happy to give you a bit of training to get it up and running. It uses the very popular and simple blogging platform WordPress. If you would like to discuss this with me please contact me at

In the meantime thanks to everybody that has subscribed to the website. I will try and add new material as much as I can.
