Merlin Updates for week ending 12th September 2014

Most of the work this week has been to prepare the site for ecommerce as we get a lot of requests from customers that they would prefer to order directly from the website so this has now started though with approximately 100,000 products it may take a couple of weeks to finalise.

Other news for this week
