Site Style

DGS BBG band

The colours on this site are essentially Blue, Brown and Gold to reflect the school colours used on the blazer badge in the 1960s.  If your colours were different, then let us know.  No attempt has been made to match the colours exactly because the site needs to be clear and readable.  We are all getting older and some, like me, have a visual impairment.  The font/type size is set to Verdana 12pt. You can adjust the size of the display by using the zoom feature in your internet browser.   There's more about colours on the HELP page.

Despite having attended a grammar school my spelling, grammar and punctuation are not good.  I can only apologise and will accept corrections gracefully.
