WE have learnt that the Clone Valley Railway where we were on 19th April has to vacate the land by the end of the year, a big jog with all that kit even if they do find a piece of land big enough. I don't envy them the task of moving.
We have had our own problems with our web site in that the person who looked after it at a modest cost has been told by their accountant to wind up the computer side of the business. We were put onto another chap but costs were many times what we were paying. However after an appeal at a Club meeting one of the members was confident that he could run things for us. And so it has worked out and we are indebted to this member.
Last month's talk Since records Began by Bill Clark took us through sound recording from wax cylinders right through to CD's with demonstrations of the sounds and visual projections to complement them. A really interesting and enjoyable evening.
