Quainton News Archive - Quainton News No. 71 - September 1992

From the Carriage Shop - Dennis Vass

Activity continues to be directed towards the Ten Million Pennies Appeal and by mid-June the sum raised from grants, donations, raffles, etc., stood at just over £26,900 (2,690,000 pennies). This includes £816 from the pond sited outside the Carriage Shop.

Please continue with your support. The up-to-date "score" will be displayed beside the pond.

Special mention must be made of the efforts of Phil Tarry who, in between his on-site Parks and Gardens activities, grew enough miniature marigold plants at home to fill 250 bedding plant strips which have been sold in aid of the Appeal. Thanks also to his wife Jane who, after painting sets and fences at Quainton at weekends, provided a "sales outlet" at their garden gate to ensure that no sales opportunities were lost when the gates were closed at Quainton.

The text in this Quainton Railway Society publication was written in 1992 and so does not reflect events in the 20+ years since publication. The text and photographs are repeated verbatim from the original publication, with only a few minor grammar changes but some clarifying notes are added if deemed necessary. The photos from the original publication are provided as scans in this internet version of this long out of print publication.
