Project 22 on tour SVR Diesel Gala 2016
Another great weekend of meeting people and discussing Project 22. These shows are rewarding on many levels, we have a nice community spirit, meeting friend and making new friends.
Our aim is to let folk know what we are doing and above all reroute volunteers to help with the project. We are also looking for information relating to Class 22 locomotives, finding people to share photos, stories and memories. We always come up trumps and take home good contacts.
Our sales effort is always rewarding with the merchandise and our books making selling well. This weekend we turned in £1500 which we were very pleased about. We made some excellent contacts and manged to gain commitments from a number of free basic member’s relating to pictures and stories for Lister.
We have a good team of stand volunteers, including, Bob Hunter with his excellent Gauge 1 Class 22 models and Steve Bolton helping out as well.
These shows are hard work and take a lot of commitment from the committee to ensure it works well so well, Doug, Tim, Stacie, David and myself.
Thanks to all that attended and made us feel like our efforts will be worth while, with out you there will be no 22!
Lets look forward to anther good show in June at the West Somerset Railway.
