Change of domain name and website updating
In the Spring of 2019 the webmaster took the difficult decision change this website domain name from the www.southlakesgroup.org to www. thebrewstop.co.uk to reflect name of website better which was change in 2014 when this website's in house cycling group 'The South Lakes Group' decided to move its reports of its cycling actives on to RSF website. So over the course of Summer of 2019, a lot stuff that was on was on the old website as been move across to the new website and the information on old domain name website as been taken down, with web traffic being redirect from the old website domain name to new website domain name.

With regards to photo galleries we only moved 2017, 2018 and 2019 so far! So you  may find few broken links on the website to photo galleries before 2017 which are going republish in the future.
