The first AGM of the Swanage TC Group on Saturday the 13th April 2013 was a great success. There were 12 attendees, and apologies from several other interested people who were unable to attend.
The managing committee and officers were proposed and elected as follows:
Chairman Dan Bennett
Deputy Chairman George Rashbrook
Secretary Tim Buck
Treasurer James Cox
Membership Officer Tim Buck
Technical Officer James Cox,
Publicity/Marketing Officer Luke Farley.
The constitution was approved and can be seen on the website soon.
Various plans for restoration were discussed, and it was agreed that we will aim to initially restore a 3TC, with the fourth vehicle being completed when funds and resources permit.
The Swanage Railway Trust have discussed the possibility of signing A 99 year lease of the TC, which would enable us to claim gift aid on donations.
There was a call for volunteers to help with publicity over the Swanage Railway diesel gala weekend (10th-12th May 2013), as the Swanage TC Group are running a publicity stand and giving out leaflets, so if anyone can help, please contact us via the website or Facebook.
