March Tote results

The quarterly tote results are as follows:-

1 C B of West Sussex £42

2 G L of Matlock £25.20

3 J W of New Zealand £16.80

If nothing else, this shows how widespread the supporters of the ALRS are. If you would like to join the tote and have a chance of winning quarterly, an application form can be found by following the membership link on the Home page.

We leave our mark…….

The much-loved Ashover Light Railway leaves its mark in all kinds of places. Here it pops up on a beer pump in the marvellous Old Poets Corner, where they brew a beer with (almost) our name on it, and the hand pump is adorned with an evocative depiction of a Baldwin.
This is also the venue for our quarterly committee meetings, and we thank them for their hospitality and support over the years.
