The KMRC Skrifa / Blog index

Welcome to the new KMRC Skrifa.

Why Skrifa you might ask... well it's Cornish for "writing" so for those of you East of the River Tamar it's our new blog. 

It will comprise of an occasional series of posts from around the KMRC family covering a range of updates, tales and information that we feel would / might be of interest to you. 

There is no set publishing time frame or interval for new posts, just when we feel we have something interesting to say.

The KMRC Skrifa is an evolution of a number of articles published a while ago by the boss known as "Chris's Briefs" (yes really) as we plan to have a number of the team contributing we felt a new name would be appropriate. 
We hope you enjoy the content and we welcome your feedback, see Keep in Touch below.
