I forgot to mention that we saw Malcolm Chambers at the Newhaven show last week. Malcolm looked good, but did not spend too long there, I know you will all join me in wishing him a speedy full recovery.Next meeting with John is in two weeks, watch the skies, or this blog for the result!

The results for the two shows were about £133 for the BMRC and £80 for the Newhaven show, fair results I suppose and a bit more money in the coffers.Thanks to all members who manned the stall. We also had a new member, welcome Tony! We have had a poor response to the meeting /social for the 3rd of Jan, please make an effort, it is good to meet up with others and to hear the latest news.There is also the dreaded Presidential quiz with prizes.....and mince pies.

Ray and myself met John and his son last night for talks on the agreement and have agreed to meet in a month's time, so that John can carefully read the agreement Ray presented. I won't say too much else, but Ray did a great presentation and I did my best to explain to John why we want what we want. I will say the dynamic was different, but what the end result will be, I cannot predict.

The Saturday was busy, Sunday was quiet overall, but we made £133.45, a very respectable sum for a small show. Many thanks to all who helped and to Ray, Tony and Paul for extra stock. We also did get a lot of local people into trams, many having never realized that Brighton had a system! The idea of trams in Stanmer park was rated as excellent by all.... I spoke to Mr. and Mrs. Dowling, who own the works car. This has just been painted , so they don't want to sell up, but they said if they ever move, the tram will be donated to us!!!!

I have just returned from holiday and on going through my e-mails, I have just received an e-mail from Malcolm Chambers saying he has had a heart attack. Malcolm has been a very active member and a great help to our society, so on behalf of the society may I wish him a full recovery. One of the great bonuses of this project is the the tram fans I have met and Malcolm has always been great company, intelligent,with a great sense of humour and full of ideas. Our thoughts are with you Malcolm.
