Friday Wood Farm Workshop Update September 2019.

Be proud, be very proud!

Carriage No.5 has left the workshop and is now at Woody Bay to much cheering, rich acclaim, cries of ‘stunning’, ladies fainting and horses bolting!

It has been two months since the last EAST Group update due to all efforts being concentrated on completing Carriage No.5.

Our volunteer hours for July 2019 totalled 268 and for August an amazing 411. Wonderful work.

Congratulations to all our workers and volunteers.
