    Following last month’s appeal, we are delighted to announce that Colin Howard has very kindly agreed to join our team as Social Media & Man United FC Liaison Officer, commencing on 2nd December. Colin is currently the Acting Sales and Marketing Manager for the West Somerset Railway at Minehead and will bring a great deal of experience to our group. He is also Chairman of the Bridgwater and South West Branch of the Manchester United Supporters Club and a member of the MUFC Fans Forum and he believes that combining our two roles will dovetail nicely. We look forward to welcoming him on board.

    If you are able to devote some spare time, then we would be delighted to hear from you. We realise that, given the geographical spread of our Members and Shareholders, it will not be possible for everyone to attend every meeting but please don’t let this put you off volunteering.

    With modern communications we can all stay in contact on a regular basis so most if not all of the job functions we want to fill can be carried out remotely without the need to come to our base at Knaphill.

    We appreciate your support and ask that your contribution, comments and donations keep coming, without your support we cannot make this happen.


    Our blog is primarily aimed at the Manchester United B17 project, however we welcome comments, feedback and chat regarding all aspects of the heritage railway and steam scene.
