About the contributor

Barry Ainsworth
User ID: U1544983


I run a couple of entertainment web sites which are quite big.

I am happy to help anyone that would like to either improve their information layouts etc.

I realise there are people eager to be involved but Reluctant to, or Unsure of how to ?????.

This site deserves to represent as many people as possible.

I am based in London, but that is not that important.

If you would like to email me then, will find me.
Please put BBCWW2 at the Start of the subject line.
