We prefer contact by e-mail in the first instance.

When you contact us please start the subject line of your message with "IWFHS:" - this will help us identify the source of your message.

PLEASE do NOT send the same message to more than one Committee Member, as this causes confusion. We will pass on any message to the most appropriate person to respond.
