Thank you for your kind words Liz. For those visitors to our site who aren't Club members, here are four pages from our Club's quarterly magazine Farina News 154, September 2018 which celebrates the A40 Farina's 60th anniversary and a congratulatory message from HRH Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh (who was the catalyst for bringing the A40 Farina to the drawing board in the first place).

Liz, a truth universally misunderstood is that an editor-cum-journalist has to accept that whereas many people may read the work only a tiny percentage will feel the need to respond: think of other publications (print or electronic) that you yourself read but have hardly ever engaged with. Those 300+ viewers will hopefully have learned something from this thread, so that's the comfort I can take.

Wise words you two.

I always think that if people are not complaining then they must be happy.

Not sure I have ever received a complaint since becoming chairman, so I guess everyone is happy!

There are some very good people doing some very good things for this little gathering and all are unsung heroes. Well done all.
