Western Locomotive Association

New Fundraising Officer Appointed!

9th April 2024

Following a recent WLA Management Committee Meeting, it was decided to create a new Committee Member post, specifically for fundraising. On behalf of the WLA Committee, I am pleased to welcome Mike Tromans as the candidate unanimously voted for and, as a result, Mike has been co-opted onto the Committee, subject to the usual voting procedure at the next AGM.

Being a WLA Working Member, Mike is well known within the WLA and was previously associated with much of the preparation work to make D1048 Western Lady presentable for last year's SVR Autumn Diesel Bash, which involved a complete repaint.

Based on previous experience, Mike put forward a comprehensive list of ideas to help raise future funds for the WLA and he states "...we need to seek out tried and tested methods of fund raising whilst at the same time delving into new, innovative and maybe even unorthodox ways as we move forward with this. Using existing and developing technologies will certainly play a major part."

I am sure you will join me in wishing Mike every success with this new, important role and welcome him to our team.

Thank you!

Roger Smith, Chairman
