Just a reminder to all 'friends'/members that we have our monthly 'working day' on Saturday from 10am so look forward to seeing some of you then.

I would like to say that in recent weeks, quite a few new 'friends'/members have come on board with us so on behalf of the group, thank you for your interest and involvement which helps to keep the fleet on the road for all to enjoy.
