How to move the layout container down to show some background image at the top?

I want to drop the main layout by 80px to create a gap at the top to show some of the background image. And I want the layout container to have a margin. There is a small space at the moment, but I don't know how to make it bigger.

If I add to the Layout Container Style:
Code:
padding-top: 80px;
this is fine without a border, but doesn't work with a border because the padding comes inside the border. How can I put a padding above the top of the border?

Please excuse me if I'm not using the right terms as I'm very inexperienced (as you can tell!)
The site is: www.buckbyfeast.org.uk
Thanks

use a margin instead of the padding ie
HTML Code:
margin-top: 80px;

Thanks - I didn't try that because it says "Don't use margins here". Maybe could be clarified? But anyway Atahualpa is a fantastic theme - thanks to all involved.

well did you try

And instead of margin-top and margin-bottom use padding on the body (see menu tab "Body, Text & Links")
