A note of thanks to all concerned for the way you all pulled together to provide a successful outcome to the power outage yesterday.
Particular thanks to Nick for securing the vital part with only 9 minutes to collect, and Jimmy for sorting your junk boxes to find a delay timer.
Without you help Cheshire County Council would not have the luxury of a fully operational data centre to-day.
