The idea of organising such events – giving information on everything from brass foundries and coal mines to crane building – came from Bryan Chalker – a former mayor, councillor and B&NES heritage champion.

With seven exhibitions under his belt – and another one planned – l asked him how pleased he was to see the event continue.

If you think you can help Bryan and his gang with repainting the old steam crane at Western Riverside – and have some time to spare next weekend – October 1st and 2nd – you can contact Bryan via  Bryan.Chalker@yahoo.co.uk
