I’m not sure if this has already been answered as I’ve only just got to my emails, but just in case …

In a previous existence I ran a web development company. Would highly recommend the open source CMS Drupal for a project such as this. I may even have time to help out with the web development side of things, if needed.

Cheers,

Jim
