Iron Horse Appeal

17th March 2017

Following three donations this week amounting to some £2000, and the £21,000 received from the Weybourne Shop for sale of donated items, we are pleased to announce the WD Appeal now stands at £49150, just £850 short of the target. Wouldn't it be great if by the end of the month the £50,000 had been reached? If you think you could send a few pounds to make this happen it would be very much appreciated. Payment may be made by cheque to the Society or by Paypal here.

Iron Horse Tender Update

17th January 2017

The tender side on landward was very distorted and had been filled with filler at least an inch thick with nails welded on the dimples to give a grip for the filler. This has now had the filler dug out and the sides cut where the dips were the sides pulled out and re-welded to give a flatter surface.
