Rick Sayers RIP

Rick Sayers 1941 - 2019

It is with deep regret that we announce the passing of Rick Sayers who died on Thursday 21st March.

For many years Rick and his wife Barbara ran the L&B sales stall at galas.

Rick and Barbara joined the L&B back in the days of the Signalbox Museum in Barnstaple. Travelling far and wide whilst wearing their L&B fleeces and hats, always promoting the L&B.

Rick and Barbara were such a fixture that the railway won’t be quite the same. Their enthusiasm and fundraising efforts over the years will be missed.

Our thoughts are with Barbara at this time.




The Galas just won't be the same without Rick and Barbara in attendance. Rick always greeted you with a smile and an anecdote or two! He will be greatly missed by many and of course especially by Barbara. Our thoughts are with her.
