Bumper Edition of our Newsletter
No expense has been spared, not only have members now received the latest (Spring 21) edition of the newsletter courtesy of the Post Office delivery system but it is also a bumper edition of 16 glorious pages in full colour (3 plus black actually).
Apologies to members who live in what is referred to as Out in The Sticks or on old maps as Here be Dragons if this digital edition arrives before the post does. As always the digital version can be download from the members page.
Updates for members are on the members page
Covid 19 Update
As you can well imagine from the various news outlets there's not a lot to report. Rest assured as soon as the Government announces the details of its latest U-Turn we will respond to it provided there is not a 10 year prison sentance hidden in the small print
After several delays due, in the main , to the many and varied Covid restrictions imposed since its delivery our new ticket office has finally been erected.
Its not finished yet though. There's a hatch for the Station Mistress and the general colour scheme has to be agreed on which will hopefully make blend it in with the rest of the clubhouse.
When we can actually use it for its intended purpose is out of our control, perhaps things will change again next week or even tomorrow, if the government lives up to its normal U turn senario.
However, as things stand it looks more likely that Easter 21 could even be a tall order
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.
