Hi Jo,

Your website isn't too bad at 3.5 seconds. There are certainly room for improvement though.

I would install a caching plugin in your WordPress site such as ZenCache (https://wordpress.org/plugins/zencache/) and then enable it on your site. This should reduce the 1 second TTFB your experiencing.

I would also enable HTTP compression on your website (it's a small tweak to one of your website files but the effect can be dramatic!).

After that, I would merge all the CSS & JS files into a single file (we could certainly help with that).

Once that's done, we would re-evaluate the next steps
