FILES NORMALLY AVAILABLE FROM OUR WEBSITE
Normally we will place any files you might need to download on our website. We will then post news about that file on the website and social media, and POINT THERE with a URL to the post where the file is for you to download.
PDF Files – Generally the files to download on the website will be in a universal file format called .PDF (Portable Document Format).
PDF Fillable Files – As an alternative to web forms we may occasionally have a special PDF Fillable file available, they look the same as a normal PDF file, but have special areas where you can type into, and generally there will be instructions on how to send that back to us (filled in).
Photo Files – We have many photos on the website and they will be in the format .jpg and .png
We also employ web forms as much as we can so you do not have to worry about a PDF Reader program.

Try downloading the file again. If this doesn’t work – try clearing the computers CACHE, and then try again.

Your Default Browser might be at fault
there are several alternative browsers to mention,
For Windows or Android Phones or Tablets -try: Chrome (Google), FireFox, Opera.
Another alternative to try is to SAVE the PDF to your local disk storage such as a hard drive, then use your file explorer to browse to that file and try loading it from there. (this will eliminate a problem with the browser.
Your Virus Checker or Browser might prevent Pop-ups
Sometimes certain software can block pop-ups from working (as security setting), On the website we display our PDF’s in a new window and this can sometimes be taken as a pop-up. You should allow this window to display. You could make the website a “trusted” site.
