RLA was out in force to support Remembrance Sunday at the Folkestone War Memorial on 8th November. Leading member Rosemary Dadson (first picture left ) assisted our chairman in laying the RLA wreath at the ceremony. A number of members then proceeded to take part the Gurkha Remembrance Service at St Georges. (second picture below)
RLA back on the street with our ... why not Folkestone Port? survey unit last Saturday 14th . We deliberately downplayed the immediate RLA connection,which proved fruitful and a good talking point. This is a part of the build up to our new business proposal to be jointly presented by us and our Light Railway consultants. As you can see this second outing was a dull, damp day as we sheltered in the Tent interviewing a member of the public. In spite of the inclement weather,spirits were good and we managed to carry out 30-40 interviews. A relatively quiet town centre didn't effect the response which as usual was overwhelmingly positive-and we even had several membership application requests. Many thanks to Margie,Matt , Rodney and even the chairman for braving the elements.
