Just a few lines to illustrate our participation in the volunteer recruitment fair this weekend. The Broadway Area Group had a stand both days, and met many interesting people. It's not just the potential volunteers you meet, but useful contacts from various industries, as well as volunteers from other departments that you have been meaning to ask something. So a fruitful day all round, and Recruitment Director Philip Young was in high spirits at the end of the weekend; the results were very pleasing, we heard.
|Now that is a class 24, and when I was a lad....
Among the people we met today were a NR manager, someone with electrical skills, someone in the building trade who advised us about slates, a metallurgist with experience of corrosion, and a retiring NR signalman who would like to work at Broadway. Useful contacts there, and several new volunteers for us with skills.
Outside, P & O had at last managed to get some breathing space. Two RAC vans then drew up next to her, and the RH motion seemed to attract quite some interest from the patrolmen. Wouldn't start, we suppose. Better to be a member than call for help at the roadside!
Towards the end of the day we were treated to a fine departure by Dinmore Manor. An excellent day for us all.
