  1. Dear Paul. I spoke to LInda the other day and she said you now do the speaker bookings.
    My father went to the Warkwickshire Industrial Archaeology Society recently and heard a talk by Peter Coulis and Alan Jennings on “Warwick and Leamington Tramways” . Said it was good and well presented. Thought I’d let you know.
