2009 Election Address: Member of the Railway for over 25 years and current Trust Secretary. I feel that my knowledge and experience will be hugely beneficial as the Trust looks towards fulfilling its ultimate objective of regular trains between Swanage and Wareham. I have always been a strong advocate of the principle of a membership controlled railway and will work tirelessly to ensure that this is upheld. In addition to continuing fundraising activities, I am committed to pursuing the following objectives in the immediate future:
- Improving communication across the Railway with the members and working volunteers in particular
- Encouraging the principles of trust and mutual respect across both the SRT CoM and SRC Board
- Encouraging the continuation of a sustainable restoration programme of our valuable Bulleid and Maunsell heritage rolling stock.
Thank you for your generous support in the past – I look forward to continuing to serve you in the future.
Term ends: 2011
