***VOLUNTEERS NEEDEDThis Wednesday 27th of January 2016 the Carriage Dept. are continuing to empty the Maldon Goods Shed which Victrack will shortly begin to restore to its former glory.
We are "under the pump" to clear the shed and surrounds and it would be great if a few more volunteers could assist the currently under-manned team.
If travelling some distance don't forget we have accommodation in a carriage and a kitchen/recreation area for your enjoyment.
Work clothes and gloves essential and, if you can spend an hour or two (or stay the night) please contact Dave Bail on 0407 817 031 to ensure accommodation is available.
Our Carriage Team Need Your Help
They would like your help to lift the structural and aesthetic standard of all the VGR rolling stock.
Anyone with previous experience from the building trade i.e. Builders, Carpenters, Sparkeys, Upholsters, Painters as well as anyone familiar with maintenance or any form of skilled work would be of great benefit to the team, but experience is certainly not a prerequisite as there are plenty of general roles which anyone of any age (fairly fit & able) can assist with.
The Gang is based at the Maldon Goods Shed throughout the week / weekends.
If your interested in helping the Carriage Team please contact Dave Bail on 0407 817 031 or Brendan Leach on (03) 5443 6394.
