This includes the most recent from Halls' Wedding Taxi on their Blog, which reads:
"Halls Wedding Taxi [website] has only been live for two weeks and we have had a email from a young lady who would like to view the taxi for her wedding in August 2013.
She was tremendously impressed by the photos taken by Focal Strategy.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Sue and Peter for building this new exciting website."

Do keep your eyes open for a phishing scam that seems to be going about at the moment.
Initially it appears that you receive an email seemingly from one of the people you follow on Twitter. The message can vary but it is something that suggests you have been tagged in a Facebook video or message, and there is a link for you to follow - like that shown here:
Once the link is followed it takes you to a Facebook App which asks you for your Twitter sign in information (like the one above)....DO NOT enter your sign in information as this is possibly a scam and phishing exercise.
If you are concerned that you are being targeted, or your own Twitter Account has been hijacked in a similar phishing exercise, the best action is to change your Twitter password.
If you are no longer able to access your Twitter account as it has been compromised, then you can contact Twitter for assistance this may be a useful article to read: https://support.twitter.com/articles/31796
