  6. We have a shiny new website! https://www.firstlightoptics.com It has a larger, more modern design with quicker, easier navigation. It also has a stronger focus on images and content. We hope you like it Because a project like this is never 'finished' we will continue to polish and improve it over time. With this in mind we are running a competition. There will be three prizes of FLO Gift Vouchers: £100, £75 & £50. Here's how to win: We will be delighted if you find a fault, of any kind, with the new website. It might be a simple typo like a spelling mistake, an over-long product title or a missing picture. Perhaps something doesn't display correctly in your browser or you might find a dead or outdated link in a product description. Anything really. We would also appreciate some suggestions. Perhaps there is a product or service you think should be offered at our website. Is there enough product information and buying advice. Perhaps you can see a way we can improve the design and layout. That kind of thing. Your thoughts, suggestions and criticism will be welcome. Please don't post your suggestions here, instead please email them to suggestions@firstlightoptics.com Every suggestion received (you can submit multiple) will be automatically assigned a number then entered into a draw. The competition starts today and ends midnight 30th Nov. Thank-you for your support, because without you there would be no FLO Best wishes, Annette, Grant, James, Jenna, Lisa, Martin & Steve
