I am very new to web design and took the bold step to do the whole thing in code rather than using a WYSIWYG editor.
It seems to work in all browsers but there is an issue in IE9 (I cant check it when building as i use XP and therefore cant run IE9). The issue is with the image boxes at the bottom. There is a gap and one box is pushed to the next line. It works in compatibility mode.
Sorry if this is in the wrong place, this is my first post.

I think the slideshow of images is too big and takes up way too much screen estate, I think it would be better if it butted up against the top and your logo floated on top?
Also, the menu buttons seem too small.
You also have a huge wall of text under the menu - this should be broken down into separate paragraphs so it's easier to read.
Good start, keep up the good work!
Thanks for the comments. I built the site to a design layout by someone trained in design for digital media. I do agree with your comments however.
One thing i struggle with is placing elements on top of each other. i understand the principal of the z-index, but in practice I have trouble layering elements. Don't know why but it just doesn't click. i could make the logo part of the images, which does mean I don't have the issue of it disapaering due to the changing colour behind the logo.
As for the block text, that is going to be re written so I will change it's layout then.
