I HAVE been hearing from different people that there is no mention of events going on within the Wisbech & March Bramley Line, in the columns of this newspaper lately.
We have not issued any news because there is so much going on in the background at present, we simply haven't got round to writing anything.
If people wish to know what is happening, they visit either of only two websites giving true details of the line and events, on www.bramleyline.org.uk or www.freewebs.com/bramleylinesupporters or they can join the group, attend meetings and get up to date information.
The main website is updated as much as possible, while supporters can be updated daily.
What we can assure all readers is that, despite the low numbers at present, the ardent track-clearing team members are working hard to clear the vegetation, but will always welcome more over 16 years of age, male or female, to come along and help.
So far we have members travelling from not only Wisbech area, but Chelmsford, London and even one from Scotland to help clear the trackside of vegetation.
To join the Bramley Line, all people need to do is either write to the address below, telephone the office on 01354 651188 (mobile 07874 121 211, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the main website and download an application form, then send it to Wisbech and March Bramley Line, PO Box 132, Wisbech, PE13 2WZ.
Many people have made remarks about this project not going ahead, but on behalf of the ardent members of the Bramley Line, we are going to run trains along here as soon as possible.
We have a date in mind, but it will depend on several matters being dealt with first.
The appeal for donations that were made by the founder and the first elected chairman, Peter Downs, just before he stood down, is going well.
I do know the exact figure raised so far, but this is being kept quiet as we still need a bit more just yet.
We are not giving up; we are going to run trains.
BRIAN BAYLIS, Chairman, Bramley Line committee
