Well, it's been far too long since we posted about the restoration, and unfortunately, we are still unable to get to Sheffield Park to carry out physical works to the loco. However, the fund raising has continued albeit not so vigorously as previous years! We have had a steady trickle of jam, marmalade and chutney sales, this is from a table with an honesty box, placed outside a friends house. This is situated near St. Peter's church in Upper Beeding.
HOWEVER! We have now crashed into the 21st century and have opened an online shop! yes, you heard right! The shop can be found via the link below. We are constantly adding stock to the list, both one off items and some of the items you might expect to see on our physical sales stand. There are currently plenty of items for you to look at, and more will be added this week!
We are hoping to be able to get back to working on the loco later this year as restrictions, both government and railway, are lifted. there is still plenty to do which will, of course need paying for!
If you would like to help by donating to the cause, please donate anything you can afford to help us see our efforts and passion come to a successful end.
A donation of £27 would go a long way towards our aim.
(with gift aid that becomes £33.75)
