Due to ongoing server issues by #Easily.co.uk (and zero #customerservice updates), my website is down and I have no access to my emails. If you need to contact me, please use LinkedIn or spiessensc@hotmail.com Also looking for new server provider suggestions, thx.

Our email/contact on our website is down, what a pain! Not sure what happened, waiting for Microsoft to sort it 🙄 in the meantime if you need to contact us or have contacted us and not heard back this is why. You can email us at rsswinden@hotmail.com for the next week or so 👍🏼 https://t.co/jbjEZ4yc6f
