The online dating service offered through the Farmers Weekly website will be offline from 8am on Wednesday 4 August 2010 for a period of up to 24 hours.

The service, which is provided by Muddy Matches, is being upgraded so it offers a faster and more efficient service to members.

Muddy Matches has said that any member with a current subscription will have an extra day’s subscription credited to their account to make up for any time that they could not use the site.
