A couple of quick ideas:

- Why not have all of the content hosted in the site rather than linking back to the Facebook page?
- Change the email in the header to an actual link.
- Membership form link in the footer doesn't work.
- Enlarge the tabbed interface and make all of the tabs the same size so that you don't get a jump when you navigate between them. Making them larger will allow for larger images, more information, etc., etc.
- Having some information about the club on the home page rather than a video might be useful to say what the site is actually about on first glance.

Just a few points, only had a quick look.

Thank you for the feedback will be making the changes shortly. I don't have an eye for art. I have someone who builds websites looking at it too but any more advice is welcome.

Thanks a lot.

I'd have the pictures in a nice grid view or something rather than linked to facebook :)

Here's an idea i have for the Club Info section.
Basically when you click on one of the links they all fade out then it fades back in to what you click on.

For example it would start out as this.

And if you click on the "Club Contacts" link everything will fade out and fade back in to something like this (i had a go at matching your colours)

You could also use a jQuery scroller for the videos.

You have a really nice, clean design there. Looks really professional compared to other angling sites that i have seen.

A text fade jQuery could be a nice solution, I will look into this. I am not a good coder but taking one step at a time.

I am also testing out some jQuery photo sliders too.

Many thanks for all your suggestions. I don't have a creative eye like some of you do.
