I am very pleased to say we had a lot of people out at 53 today! I didn't take photos but we did have seven of us! We shifted the supports for 53 and she now sits on the same area as the wheels did, in other words the right place! John the farmer appeared and all had a chance to say their bit. I will go over and talk man to man to him shortly. Am I optimistic? Been here before! I really don't know, but this is the best way to reach an agreement or to find out we are been suckered. I will post when I have rapped with Mr. How. We have appeared in the local Brighton magazine for Preston park, nice article, thank you Preston pages!

The last present work party is next week, on Saturday the 22nd.Please can you attend if possible, there is plenty to do and to make sure 53 is ready for the winter if we are not out there again.The membership has voted with it's feet not to work out there and until John signs up, I quite agree. After next Saturday, I want an agreement in writing.We will go out there to continue the CAD plans of 53 and to do a little work on 225 if need be, but that will be it.I hope this is not the case, but the ball is firmly in John's court and we will see by his actions if he is really concerned about 53.

Out at the Lavender line today in superb sunshine,, a day of Riley's railway, to raise funds for a children's hospice. We made £23 and gave out some leaflets, thanks to my wife and Paul Marriott for helping, that is how things do get done. I notice that some of you who have been eager for the free tokens have never appeared at a work day, or helped out at a stall, think again please.

Out at 53 on my own that is the last time I will do that. I managed to get 225' s roof done, but I couldn't even do all the measuring for the CAD plans I needed another pair of hands.Another day like today and I am back to the Bluebell, 53 deserves better.
