  2. Restricting Access To The Rides List

    thanks for that, the last time I looked they were just lists and not all the pictures, so, even more reason for wanting to pay to see them given they aren't elsewhere?

  4. Have a great day Keith, hopefully see you at Churchdown.

    Hi @Bill Edwards, many years ago I accidentally ran up HUGE bills on several credit cards. These have been all cut up for a number of years and I hope to pay them off in a few years time. I hope you understand that until I have paid them off I don't wish to become a paid subscriber. I have though contributed with content on many occasions and have provided reliable information as to when rides change hands. Please therefore could you grant me access to the rides list. Regards, Mark.

    It says that access to rides lists should be available to those who contributed. As someone who was responsible for writing the Ark/Waltzer/Skid/Autodrome, etc lists is it possible to be given access please?

      So even though I supplied most of the original information Bill, you're saying you don't want me to see the lists? That's a bit petty isn't it?

      It's a fiver a year towards our considerable hosting and storage costs. From my point of view it's a bit petty to quibble over a fiver. But if you're that adamant you won't help, I'll add access and just hope we don't lose the entire forum through lack of support.

      I'm more than happy to contribute and I'll help towards costs to keep it going as well. Will you be at Churchdown, if so I'll catch you then?

    Hi Jamie

    I have been resricted access to the ride lists, and I do put up Fair Reports from time to time, admittedly not for a while, but some times they have already been done by someone else,  my last one was March Cambridgeshire 16th-20th March 2017, dose that count to get access to the rides list.

  14. I have been asked by a fellow collector to advertise these 2 fully restored Anderson Juvenile horses on his behalf. I do not wish to be party to any discussions re these horses as I am just posting the ad for the vendor in case anyone maybe interested. All enquires must be made directly to John Barker (Beaconsfield) on 01494 675986. They are both by Anderson of Bristol, 1890 - 1900, and both measure 41 inches hoof to hoof and 30 inches hoof to top of ear. I understand they both come with photos showing their restoration and are priced at £2,000 each, cash on collection. The photos below highlight their condition which I can vouch for, having recently seen them. Once again, all enquiries direct to John Barker please on 01494 675986 as I am in no way involved in any transaction.

    Bill, my Forum status is Member. Will that enable me to continue to access the Rides List? The reason I ask is that I do not qualify as a contributor. Best wishes, Stef.

      Unless you have submitted photos for the Rides List, submitted funfair reports or support the forum financially then you will be unable to access the Rides List from the 1st January.
