Update ........ Just three pledge payments to go and we'll be there! I expect I'll be able to post it on Monday.
Steve Griffith, as well as making a donation, has kindly agreed to take delivery of the Bluemels mudguard tool and forward it to the Museum, which is closed until May 17th. Steve is a volunteer at the Museum.

£5.00 sent as promised by Paypal. Maybe we should do more of this sort of thing!

The Bluemels Mudguard Tool is on its way to the National Cycle Museum

Thanks to everyone here for their support and generous donations which have made this possible.
The total raised was £90, so extremely close to the target, and testament to the commitment made by the forum members.

Many thanks to everyone who funded this I have just received the item from fastpedaller it’s lovely and a real addition to the museum .
The museum should re- open 17./5 .check our website
Anyone who funded the purchase is welcome to a free admission to the Museum (in Llandrindod ) just let me know when you might visit
Trivia note although the Bluemels factory is long gone the site near Coventry is a housing develop but they have preserved the name and feather logo in one of the buildings
Thanks again to all who. Contributed

Great to hear that the target was achieved and the museum has acquired an interesting artefact.
Perhaps we could have a wish list of items that the museum would be keen to get hold of and a list of interesting items members may have that they would like to donate to the Museum for free or via crowd funding, as in this case.

Cheers, Kenny Atherton
