40th Birthday celebrations

Shaun contacted the Sheffield Star on Saturday 8th February to see if they would like to run a retro article about our group's history over the last 40 years. Shaun was contacted on the Sunday and Monday by two different journalists wanting to run the feature. After an additional interview on the Monday the two page article was published in the Star on Wednesday 12th February. To our knowledge this is the biggest press feature we have had in the local media. The article can be viewed on line but it doesn't contain many pictures. The paper edition featured eight photographs. See the on-line article here:

Shaun, Richard and Francois will meet on Monday 24th February in the Red Deer pub to discuss other birthday celebration ideas for the coming year. Please come along or contact us if you have any ideas.

We decided to purchase a case for Shaun’s eco model but that has been on-hold whilst work continued on the retro article. Shaun is also working on a model concentrating solar power plant.
