Forum opens on-line shop

As an experiment the group has opened an on-line shop. This will in future offer a number of publications, but initially there are just two items which are offered as a free download, plus one as a Hard Copy to purchase. Purchasers are asked to enter their details, so we can access the popularity of this venture.
