NEWHAVEN BRANCH

Some long time has elapsed since the last report from Newhaven. We will shortly be experiencing the Modernisation of Newhaven Harbour, which many throughout the country know as the embarkation port for their holiday to the  Continent.

Our Loco., situated directly alongside the Quay, lends itself to many advantages connected with the modernisation which the management have indicated will receive their consideration at Joint Consultation level, in conjunction with the Shipping and Continential Manager. Private enterprise would no doubt welcome the co-operation we are prepared to offer, let us hope the B.T.C. will too.

A new tug has just bee launched named “Meeching”, which was the old name for Newhaven. 1960 starts off with as good a Branch Committee any new Secretary could wish for, namely, Bros. E. King, C. Wickenden, R. Morris, R. Turner, J. Nash, W. Ware, F. Goff, L. Lower and V. Harris, the latter being not only L.D.C. Chairman but a well-known local football referee.

I can now report 100% A.S.L.E.&F. membership.

S. Cheal,
