Not quite finished, but I thought I'd post for a review anyway ;)

Designed/coded by me, and a 'CMS Made Simple' integration to boot.

A bit of an on a budget job really - but, you know, hopefully money's worth :)

Hello Graft-Creative,
I think you are asking for the review of the link in your signature.
It is clean and professional.
THe coding is good.
Consider to add meta description and keyword tags also.

No, he wants a review of - lessuk DOT org - He just didn't want to put the actual link in the post.

Gary, as always, the design, flow, colors, and coding are all great. Everything seems very easy on the eye and all the content is displayed and presented nicely and informatively. The text and its containers all scale well when increasing and decreasing text size. I do see a few minor issues.

The logo text seems blurry - Local & Effective Sustainable Solutions. It just seems to play with my eyes and I'm not farsighted... yet, haha.
The tab links are default blue and default purple when visited. The default blue is fine, but I think the visited color has to go. I just feel like I'm back in the 90s when I see that, haha.
I think the "You are here" text should differentiated from the actual location text. For example, maybe - You are here: Why protect the environment? - I'm not saying that looks the best, but you get my drift. It could be a color difference or text styling.
Clicking on Food in the left navigation reveals a submenu underneath, which is nice. However, when you click on one of the links in the submenu, on the next page, that link becomes gray, bolded, and slightly less indented than the others. The gray and bold is fine, but I think the indentation difference makes it look a little "unclean".
In the Contact us page, you have links that say "click here". I think from a user standpoint, I'd also want to SEE the email addresses. There are times when I don't want my default email client to open, but I'd still like the email address. Might as well display it if you're already putting the email address in the code.

Anyway, those are all really minor details and some are just personal opinions, so take them with a grain of salt. Also, this was viewed with FF2 and IE7 at 1024x768.
