7 Mar - Further reword of the notes re PayPal. There is a known problem for users of i-phones and i-pads, possibly other tablets too, if attempting purchase OTHER THAN THROUGH A STANDARD WEB BROWSER but the suggested fix given on the page works, and links into PayPal correctly when we have tested it with the webteam's own Apple devices.
