EAST Group

The L&B's East Anglia Support Team (EAST) are busy restoring L&B heritage vehicles at Great Yeldham in Essex. Given the geographic area and the number of members resident therein, it is hoped that through this page we can raise even more awareness of where we are, what we do, when we do it, etc, etc. as we do want to encourage even more volunteers at Great Yeldham.

This is EAST reporting from Expo Narrow Gauge 2015 at Swanley in Kent!

The event was chosen to be the venue for our maiden outing for a new L&B sales/information stand which was finished very recently. It was a great success with lots of interest in the L&B at the stand and a good number of sales. It was great to meet many new people and catch up with friends and L&B members.
