Hankelow, recent winners of the Community Spirit award for Cheshire, have elected to join Europe rather than the United States.
Their website used to be found as www.hankelow.net, but recently the American government decided that it has jurisdiction over .net and .com websites. This means that webmasters of such websites are subject to American law.

So henceforth the Hankelow website will be found at www.hankelow.eu
...and the webmaster can sleep easy that any risk has now gone of being whisked off at a moment's notice from his Hankelow home to possibly spend ten years in a high-security American gaol.
