John Ball, Hon. Sec.
We seem to be in a grey area as to wearing masks. Pubs and Restaurants not required, cinemas are required! Travelling on public transport has for some time required it. So, not sure where we stand, legally.
I'm not aware of any ruling by the Hall management.
Being a socially responsible sort of guy, I think that we should advise people to wear them at our meeting, but perhaps it is not a legal requirement.
Regards, John Ball.

This profusely illustrated talk given by our Chairman Dennis Flood promises to be a very amusing and entertaining evening.

Platform trolley at Christow plus
Exploring the Devon and Somerset.
How could you have not said: "Fortunately, there is an example of a Great Western trolley lovingly repaired at Christow."? Perhaps it was tucked away in a shed when you came here so I will excuse you not thinking of the Teign Valley.
The trolley also gets a mention in my Devon & Cornwall route refresher compilation (page 17 of PDF).
All good wishes for Christmas and the New Year to you and your beloved Valerie.
Further to previous correspondance. If anybody wishes to read the official MOT Report into the Bodmin General accident that occured in 1961 a copy can be downloaded here:
