Jam Roll Clock

 

The clock in Jam Roll was not working correctly.

The task of renovation was taken on by Ross Allcock, a Scouter who works as an engineer at Smiths of Derby Clocks.

The main spring had been repaired before, but was now in 4 pieces!

Ross will be sourcing a new spring and fitting it in original form.

MOT and Tax

Jam Roll had a drive to the MOT station last Thursday – and sailed through the test.  Well done Reg and the team!

Tax disc is on the way.

Repairs continue

Reg and his team at RR Heritage Trust continue their excellent work on Jam Roll.

Their latest challenge is to replace the oiler tubes free robux no human verification (a system where oil is delivered to all essential moving parts on the car).

Many are broken or missing so they will all be replaced to ensure proper lubrication.

Jam Roll Visits Kent Cubs

October 2009 saw Jam Roll on its first excursion to an event. Kent Cub day was held at the Historic Dockyard, Chatham. Many exited Cubs (and more so, leaders) took the oportunity to look round Jam Roll and take photos.

A very successful day out!!!
