Today we had a working party to make space for our new tennants Scaftec.
A monumental effort from everyone who helped out. Tom, Dan, Nick, Rodger, Peter, Phil, Ed, Anthony and his son, A big thankyou
We removed close on 500 bags of builders sand. Some used to lay a new parking area for lighter vehicles. Nick also cleared alot of undergrowth by strimming. Rearranging of vehicles also started.
HAPPY NEW YEAR to all members.
Sorry for the long delay, I have been waiting for pictures to be sent to me. Quite a while ago i know but here are a few pictures of our first dartmoor running day back on 25th nov.
A very sucessful day, with nearly 200 passenger journeys taken on 168 running from Clearbrook to Princetown and Enviro 137 running from Burrator Norsworthy bridge to Milton Combe. 137 was a late subsitute as the Bristol LH and 358 were both off the road.
We will be rerunning this event in the springtime if you were unable to attend this time round. We hope to have a more varied vehicles next time
