Re: Forum advert banner

Wouldn't the best way to generate more income would be to get more members ? Maybe next to the logo should be a bit about the C.T.C. & a "join here" type link ? I don't know how much income a click on an advert generates, but I have a feeling a members subscription is far more valuable...

Re: Old bells - a goldmine???

I'm sure I was still buying that model in the 1980s for a couple of quid.

This is the sign outside Vera Lows Cottage.

The cottage used to be part of the Althorpe estate (Princess Dianas family home) & was named after the wife of one of the gardeners who resided there for many years.
