Jon and Lisa recently set up my website for me. They did an excellent job and I have since received numerous compliments about the site. They were an absolute joy to work with, casual but yet very professional. The back up service is fantastic.  I would highly recommend Format, professional,value for money and very nice people. My thanks to Lisa and Jon.
