Among the latest Bridgnorth photos is a background shot of the Barry Coach, which still seems to be in a partially renovated state. Any update on progress?

The old fund web site has not been up dated recently due to the old webmaster having gone to live in Belarus. Confused

However, there have been some changes to the Barry coach organisation! I have always wanted to change the owing group into a charity so to that end we have set up the Barry Railway Carriage Trust.

Plus within the next few days we will be launching our new website www.brct.org.uk don’t bother looking yet, it still isn’t live. Wink

Additionally the coach is being officially handed over to the Trust on the Sunday of the Autumn Gala so you are all welcome to come down to ‘sleepy-ville’ to watch. We are also going to be there throughout the Gala so if you want to come and chat to me and/or the others members of the Trust feel free to come along. Cool

Good news indeed. Is the Barry Railway Carriage Trust yet a charity, and if so can you post up the number and I'll include it in the "Express Points" list?

Thanks

Patrick

The Barry Coach 163 was officially handed over to the Trust yesterday during the Autumn Gala, which was part of the process of applying to become a registered charity. I will post on this Forum when we are finally accepted as such!

I would like to make a correction to the notes which appeared in the current Severn Valley Magazine about the coach. Between submitting the article to the Editor and publication the Trustees of BRCT decided that membership of the organisation should be revised to £10.00 per annum and that existing members would be credited with the future years membership. Thus we had missed the deadline to alter the article to reflect these changes to our membership.

Additionally we have now launched our new web-site but are experiencing problems making changes and updating it, thus we now need to find new web-hosting etc. so changes can be made more easily.

Thanks

Dave Flavell

May 19-20: 1862 – A Victorian Day Out. Revised Fares and Special Timetable

Step back to 1895 with a visit to Barry Railway Coach No. 163 at Hampton Loade. This carriage is well worth a visit and will be open on both days.


Excellent news!

As a matter of interest, (how) is this progessing?

Thanks

The SVR’s Victorian Day event, is a golden opportunity for use to showcase the Barry Coach, however it transpires that several of our members, including myself have other commitments on this day (I will be in Cornwall). Thus Mr. Jones would appreciate some assistance over this event, any volunteers please!

The purpose of setting up the Barry Railway Carriage Trust was to create a charity which would be able to look after maintain the coach in the future. However before applying for charitable status several criteria had to be met or established some of which we set for ourselves, thus we are still in going through this process. One of these was to improve our income stream because previously, lack of finance has impeded the restoration process of the coach. Therefore over the last twelve months the Trust has concentrated all its efforts on converting Van 66 (courtesy of the 813 Fund) into our fund raising brick-a-back shop in the bay at Hampton Loade. Plus since October we have also started selling some of our donated items on e-bay.

I don’t understand web-site design or how to upload same but I understand there has been a problem, so if there is someone out there who would like to volunteer to help us with this? Please contact me.

Dave, Someone has contacted the SVRA to offer help with your web site. I will send you a PM with the details.
