On Saturday 7th April, 2018 the layout of the YANT Public website at yant.org.uk changed. We are now using a system called Responsive Pages, which lets a website adapt the layout of the page to suit different devices - laptop, tablet, mobile phone - based on screen size, platform and orientation. Please send any comments, or details of any mistakes you may notice, to me at web@yant.org.uk. The Members' site will also be changing over the coming months.
