The result for the weekend at Kew, was £110.36 clear profit.This excludes the £80 pounds for the hire, so a very good result for the society! I was'nt sure but I had thought we would break even,so I am very glad to be proved wrong! We made a lot of contacts for the restoration side, and are invited to Manchester to Heaton Park, there is a big group trip! Poor Ian was on his own on the Sunday, please can we avoid this in future. I have done this and it is no fun and does'nt help the selling side, so please, sign up for expos and help out.

It's Sunday morning, and we have another day at ther Festival of Trams at Kew.Ian and Malcolm are manning the stall today, El Presidente cannot.We took over a £100 yesterday, so we are in profit, will wait to hear from the boys later about todays huge profit.Met some real restorers yesterday, much useful advice was gleaned and e-mails swappeed.The Heaton Park boys in Manchester have invited us for a visit, so how about a group trip to Manchester? The LCC group were also very helpful, and are happy for us to ask, these guys spend up to £500,000 on restorations!!!
