Getting the best from the Horspath Website

We want you to enjoy your visit to the Horspath Parish Council website. Here are some guide lines to help you.

Please note: throughout the Horspath website, underlined text in blue is a link to another web page. Click on the link to go to the new page. The sign indicates an external link. Just close that page and you return to the Horspath website. If you click on an email link, your email system will open a new message waiting to be composed, with the address already in the "To:" line.

If you have problems viewing our website you might need to check the following :



Viewing the most recent pages
We update these pages frequently, so you might need to use the "Refresh" button to see the latest information. Still can't see the latest pages? Getting the "Page Not Found" message page? Have you cleared your cache recently?
Your browser cache is a temporary storage area that holds web pages that you have looked at. Getting information from the cache is usually quicker than getting it from the internet. Such decisions are made in the background and you usually do not need to be involved. However, this can mean that you do not get the most recent version of a web page. If you are finding that the website is behaving strangely, you might find that the problem is fixed by clearing (or emptying) your cache.
