Some businesses' "BIG DAY" has come and gone. Ours will be the return of the ship to Gillingham Pier. That move is imminent but is subject to all the usual conditions beyond our control.
In the meantime we have to keep the cash flowing to make up for lost visitor revenue and to nibble away at the additional costs incurred by the fantastic work that has been done in Ramsgate. The website shop and donations, as well as Medway Queen West events and mail order, have resulted in a steady flow in the right direction which we need to maintain, or even strengthen. Medway Queen West have sent in a donation of almost £5000 from their trading this year, which is a good start! How this was achieved with most events cancelled is best not asked about!
Medway Queen West have just 5 of the latest N Gauge wagons remaining. More are held at the Medway Queen Visitor Centre so we'll tap into those when MQW sell out. For now continue to use the online form or email Richard at firstname.lastname@example.org . If one source runs out we'll automatically divert the order to the MQVC.
Sales News: Christmas cards are still available to purchase in our online shop and the PS Ryde book is selling well. Our initial batch of books from the publisher has almost gone but more have been ordered today so there should be no interruption in the supply. Medway Queen West report strong demand by "snail mail" orders of the book and in many cases Medway Queen titles are selling alongside the Ryde.
