More Fundraising.....

Well what a busy few weeks the sales team has had. Since the last update (just after the GCR winter gala) we have been to 3 other events.

First we attended the Keighley and Worth valley winter gala.

Here you can see (from left to right) Frank Richards, Neil and Karen Kinsey and Andrew Laws

Thank you to everyone who bought items and to the 3 new members who signed up on the day. Although there were another 3 who signed up later on in the week.

Secondly we attended the Milton Keynes model railway exhibition (sorry no photos as I was not at this event), and finally we have just been to the Churnet valley railways winter gala/steam weekend, which was an excellent gala with plenty of people either learning about us for the first time or getting more up to date with our progress.
On the Sunday we were in the warmth of Froghall waiting room
Where as on the Saturday we had to brave the cold but bright outdoors. As you can see from the picture the wind was quite strong in spells throughout the day.

On another note Neil Kinsey visited the Llangollen works during February and took a great picture of the Horn guides "in place"
There are now over 50 parts at Llangollen waiting to go on the frames to really get the project "rolling"

The sales team now has a well earned 2 week break till the next fundraising weekend, but you can of course still donate to the project via this link Donate Now

More info as and when it arrives.
