Lockdown means less to report, but there is one piece of good news.  At Riley and Sons, the crank pins were fitted to the main driving wheels and machined last week, and the material certification and installation has all been approved by Ricardo Certification.  We’re very grateful to Simon Scott at PRCLT for helping us bring to a successful conclusion a vexed issue going back to 2018.

The rear cylinder covers have been delivered to West Shed for machining. A programme of work has been identified and agreed with PRCLT ready for when they return to work, which we now expect to be mid-July.

We’re pleased to report that sales continue to generate income - £637 this month, mostly due to web and mail orders resulting from the Warrior. In addition, donated items on eBay have contributed £475, all of which will attract Gift Aid.

The piece about Neil Kinsey’s artwork in Warrior 45 has generated a number of commissions; as a result Neil has made a donation of £45 to the Project.  If anyone else would like him to produce a bespoke piece of work, please refer to the said article.

On the financial side, income appears to be holding up as we near the end of Quarter 1. Worthy of note are the new regular standing orders we have had, including one for £100 per month, and a number of new members. With the engineering operation at West Shed restarting in July your ongoing financial support is very much appreciated.
