Vodafone Smart Accessibility Awards 2012 Now Open for Entries

We're delighted once again to be helping out with spreading the word and holding supporting events for Vodafone Smart Accessibility 2012.

Alan Turing's Life and Legacy

The Science Museum has an exhibition opening on the 21st which could easily be of interest to the community http://www.sciencemuseum.org.uk/about_us/press_and_media/press_releases/2012/02/Codebreaker_Turing.aspx.

And while we're on that Turing theme - looking forward to seeing lots of people Friday at Bletchley Park for Over the Air.
