NETOA WAR-BLITZ-ER:

Many of you support events of our friends NETOA (North East Theatre Organ Association) and will be pleased to know that their annual War-Blitz-er event will take place on 19th July. Further details on this poster.

 

Our volunteers have been working hard since Friday at Wolsingham Station. Work carried out included strimming, sweeping, weeding and cleaning. Luckily the weather kept fine for them.
