Rolling on..... 

We just want to let everyone know that the Roll of Honour is now switched off and we are no longer taking names. We will be in touch directly with some of you in the coming days to make sure your name (or the person you want to be immortalised) is correctly spelt, this is our last chance and we cannot make corrections. There are also a couple of swear-y names which we can’t add for obvious reason. We are about to launch our new website and so it’s temporarily off line whilst we switch over… we hope to be back up and running later today. We have a whole new look and new branding. We’re sorry for the outage – and that the usual suspects are using our changeover to perpetuate panic. Please don’t believe the hype. We’re here, we’re not going anywhere - and your Vega+ IS real and IS coming to you. We’ve had a high volume of emails from and we’ll be getting back to genuine enquiries as soon as we can. We’ll have another update later today, including news about the user manual and further clarity regarding delivery. Please stay tuned. In the meantime, quoting the wonderful Terry Pratchett ““A lie can run round the world before the truth has got its boots on.”
