I think the problem is a mismatch between the 
declare and actual character sets in your pages. 
For example, the About page 
(http://www.flvc.org.uk/crisp/new/pages/about.html) 
is declared to be iso-8859-1:

<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html;charset=iso-8859-1" />

But the actual text contains UTF-8 encoding of 
the GBPound sign (shown in <hex>):

The funding includes a follow-on grant from the 
Big Lottery Fund (formerly the Community Fund) 
for <C2><A3>176,000, <C2><A3>110,000 from the 
European Social Fund...
---

I think if you changed the charset declaration to 
utf-8, you'll find the page will render correctly.

There seems to be a slightly different problem on 
the home page, which the Validator flags as an 
HTTP-header vs HTML-header encoding mismatch:
