Raffle News - Eric Miller

Opinions were divided about increasing the price of the raffle tickets to £1 - if the system isn't broken why mend it? From a straw poll of some of the members it was decided to try an increase and to the end of August the takings are way up, in excess of £1300. Set against this is an increase in the prize money, partly offset by a small reduction in the cost of printing.

Particularly pleasing is the early response by members, as money paid in goes to help our bank balance and keeps down the interest on our account.

As you may know, the cost of restoring No 66 has gone up considerably since the first estimate (as is often the case of course). So if you have any outstanding tickets please return them, or i£ you want some more contact me via the office and I will be pleased to oblige. We still have months to go so members please go to it and my thanks for your support so far.
