    An apology for the delay in the distribution of the July Newsletter.

    Our Project Leader Ken Livermore, was hastily admitted to hospital at the end of July with severe chest pains. 'Fortunately' this turned out to be caused by Gall Stones. Unfortunately they have not been able to operate until the swelling and inflammation has reduced. At present Ken is being kept in the Royal Berks hospital for observation.

    There was a good deal of progress with No.61662's Tender during July and our Dubs Tank has had a good clean up and a set of replica plates fitted so good news to follow.

    I'm sure all our members and friends will join me and wish Ken good luck and a speedy recovery.
