Dear Supporters of the GWSR,
I am pleased to tell you that the Railway's share issue has, as of yesterday 20th May, reached the £500,000 mark!
Although receipt from applications for shares has, as we expected, slowed down, £500,000 represents a terrific achievement in the 6 weeks since the share issue launch event with Pete Waterman on 6th April!
Next stop the half way point, £625,000.
The £500,000 thus far received should be enough to keep our main work teams, that's the Broadway Station team, Permanent Way and Civil Engineering, working for the rest of 2016 but, as I have to remind everyone, we still need £750,000 to finish the job!
If you have the share issue document at home and have yet to apply for shares, may I suggest now might be the time to apply so that we can keep the momentum going?
Everything else seems to be going well at the Railway this season, and we have the Steam Gala to look forward to next weekend - fingers crossed for good weather!
GWSR PLC Finance Director
