FREE to a good home

Robin Richardson asked me if there might be any members wanting some old copies of The 289 Register News. By the look of it, they go back some years. And, there are also some old copies of the CRC newsletter too. If anyone is interested and would like to arrange collection then please PM me and I'll...
