Your name if you please?  Charles Farr
Do you have any comments? Difficult to find a contact telephone or email address

Thank you for your message - I do note that we have no simple contact page on site - in fact our contact page is the "who are we" page which gives the three contacts available. It does not automatically come to mind when searching for contacts.

So I have modified that page and added contact linkages. I hope this serves the purpose!

Your name if you please?  Adrian Lawton
Do you have any comments? Well done. Had the pleasure of working at East Yelland as a trainee in 1973/74 and was involved in the decommissioning of Newton Abbot PS. Ended up at Carmarthen Bay PS in Burry Port South Wales. Ever thought of extending your reach to South Wales to create a Wales and the West Society. Still involved with the industry 31 years later - love it. Keep up the good work.

Thanks for your comments - with the successor to SWEB distribution engineering - Western Power Distribution having expanded into South Wales and with the increasing interest shown by the Society in items outside its original borders your suggestion may be pertinent.
