We've been very lucky with our members, who have joined in their droves since we started just over a year ago.
Today two very special S&D people have joined the New S&D, Nick Howes and Ian Harrington. I worked with both of them at Midsomer Norton, in the days when I was more physical than cerebral, and their work on infrastructure was second to none. Now I don't expect either of them to get their hands dirty with the New S&D as they are key members down at Shillingstone, and have more than enough to do there, but both bring a wealth of knowledge and skills to the New S&D.
We all owe Nick Howes a huge debt - it was he who started the Midsomer Norton project when the site was threatened by housing development, and I don't think it's too over the top to say that there's a direct line from that event, through the Shillingstone revival to the setting up of the New S&D. Without him the S&D would be a dead trackbed.
