Any questions?

For oft-stated reasons we haven't been able to hold an AGM this year, which means members haven't had the chance to raise any issues they would like to talk about. Now we're trying to get back to something like normality. London Group's next committee meeting is on 5th June and if there is anything you would like discussed do please let us know via london@ldwa.org.uk

And finally...

Imagine coming across this on a walk. Doesn't it just make you itch to come up with a caption? I lifted it from an interesting website called Abandoned Spaces. The steam train graveyard is part of a reserve base near Shumkovo railway station in Perm Krai, in the Ural region of Russia, where several dozen steam locomotives and wagons are rotting under the sky. How did they end up there? Well, in the time of the USSR steam trains were store there for use if World War 3 broke out. Were electricity supplies to be cut off, the trains would provide an alternative transport method.
