Our fun (mildly amusing) day was held on Saturday 2nd September, pictures can be seen on the photo gallery page
Also there are pictures from the slightly damp Charity day from Sunday 10th
The next running day will be on Sunday the 24th September when we hope the weather will be more friendly.
An extra running day! We will be running on Sunday 1st October to co-incide with the GreenDreams event being held in Field Place on that day.
The Green Dreams day starts in the morning, we will be running from 13:00 hrs until 16:00 (1 to 4) come along and enjoy the usual 50p rides
We are in the North West corner of Field |Place, beyond the Tennis Courts. I suggest that you use the first Car Park entrance on the Right after enetering Field Place having gone past the indoor bowling club on your left. Go through to the second part of the car park and from there there's a fairly direct footpath by the bowling greens on your left up to the footbridge access to the club house as ground level access to the track and clubhouse is closed off on public running days. However, there is a buggy park by our entrance and disabled acccess is provided should it be needed.
Here is a preview of the next 3 fridge magnets in our sought after series. Look out for them on Public running days.
These feature a Traction Engine, Steam Locomotive and Diesel Locomotive that are miniatures owned by club members.
Antiques are outdated, the Romans have long gone and the Dinosaurs are dead yet these magnets are made from 100,000,000 year old Welsh slate. Where else could you buy something so old and yet so new and for such a small outlay?
A dissapointing wet and windy week led up to Charity day; where it was wet and windy! It could have been a lot worse but in the end it was too much for our visitors and for us. The Ladies in the club house who put on a great catering show and others who helped with the tombola did well, proportionally better than in previous years but oh what could have been.
The next time we will be steaming up is on Sunday the 24th September, first train departs at 2 P.M.
