The Denton Flyer

Went on the train this morning from Denton and a very kind gentleman who remains anonamous donated five pounds to our funds i thank him very much. Once again there were about twenty to thirty passengers on board and it’s the same every week our train seems to be getting very popular thanks mainly to our member David Ferguson who when he’s on the train gives out leaflets to everybody on board keep up the good work Dave



Om Monday 18th and Friday 22nd of February 1000 leaflets were distributed in shops around the town centre of Denton up to now there has been no feedback whatsoever i am begining to despair of the people in the area nobody seems interested but i’m sure of one thing if we did get a service they would use it and be glad of it  Alan Jones Chairman
