Here we are again. I'm finding it difficult to believe we're now more than a quarter of the way through the year. Spring is here, Easter is behind us, April Fools tomfoolery is done for another year, BST has started, and we've started work on calculating March's community payback. All pretty momentous things, huh?
So, moving on to the nitty gritty of calculating community payback. Current status is listed below, and I'll provide updates as we tick items off.
