Message of the day

43) 24.03.2020 During the pandemic, the SRCF still expects to be able to run
               as normal.  Our volunteers routinely work remotely.  However in
               the rare event of a major fault requiring in-person maintenance
               it may take us a bit longer to fix things.  Please bear with us
               and bookmark our service status site:  https://status.srcf.net/
