Hi Ed
The last I heard was they were going to appoint some independent moderators as they thought it might be awkward for forum members to take on.
It's great that the Forum is up and running but such a shame that lots of the original members haven't been informed. Hopefully it will get sorted soon.
Hope you are well

Linda

Linda ,
       as I understand the FORUM is maintained by Newham ,so, as an idea could they not advertise locally in the newspapers that we are open for business so some old members could pick up on this , as some like myself are not on the likes of Facebook etc     Ed

That sounds a good idea Ed. When I next ring the office I'll ask them if it's possible. The only snag perhaps is that as so many of us live in different parts of the country they would need to advertise in lots of newspapers.
I wondered if when the Forum is properly up and running if the admin would be able to email the members who used to contribute on here.

Something is happening to try and contact old forum users. Back in July I discovered things were up and running again when I got what looked like an automated email which read 'Happy Birthday from the Newham Story'.
If everybody gets one of these after a year everybody will know  :)

Mention of Eastern Belle in London Transport Archives of 1947
« Reply #51 on: 19 September, 2017, 10:59:46 PM »
"Edward James Clark, Lillian Maud Clark and Horace Horatio Clark (trading as Eastern Belle Motor Coaches) - excursions and tours from Bow TNR 2451/1.85/3/47 - E J Clark, L M Clark, H H Clark (trading as Eastern Belle Motor Coaches) - stage carriages, Bow to Clapton Orient Stadium (acquisition) TNR 2451/4.86/3/47 - E J Clark, L M Clark, H H Clark (trading as Eastern Belle Motor Coaches) - express carriages Bow and West Ham Stadium (acquisition) TNR 2451/5.87/3/47 "

I am not sure what to make of this but at least it shpows Clark as the surname of folk associated with Eastern Belle back in 1947
