Our Next event, Sunday 14th August


As July had 5 Sundays there will be a two week gap between our last outing on July 24th and the next on August 14th. As usual thing will start at 2 pm with all the usual attractions that we have to offer.


To all our visitors, all payments to us are cash only. We have neither the fascilities to accept cards nor can we afford the costs associated with such transactions. Cash helps us to keep our prices away from the cost of living increases that are rampant at the moment.

Geoff Rides Again



Several members went down to Field Place this Saturday to assist Geoff, our Chief Mechanical Engineer, with the first steaming of his  3 inch (quarter scale) Burrell traction engine, that he has spent the last few years constructing.


The day was about right fine clear weather but not too warm with tea redily available and chocolate biscuits to scoff.


No issues were encountered and in general it was a productive mornings work and just shows what a friedly generous bunch we are.

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.
