Thanks Susie! Can't help but think others may never scroll all the way down to how to use forum and the news section.
After my first post in 2017, I have concentrated on the forum's sections of New to Forum and All About Caring. I've occasionally scrolled down the menu options to roll call and general chit chat and lost interest at that point. For first time I've just come across How to use Forum! Can't help but th...
