Little Lec 2018
During June 2018 we will be hosting Little Lec. This is the efficiency competition for smaller locomotives that weigh less than 50 pounds as opposed to the larger ones that compete for IMLEC. More details will follow soon and will have a dedicated web page for the event.
With the outside work now finished we are now able to move to the inside. For internal access to the project we have had to make holes in existing walls, the last one was made this week and you can see the pictures on the page devoted to the work. This will link you directly to the page. Disabled Toilets
Santa Run 2017
It could have been a Summer's day, there was rain, a bitter wind and just before 9 a rainbow made a brief appearance. Many thanks to our visitors who braved the weather and to the club members who still came out to face the elements. Thanks too to the ladies in the kitchen and the helpers that manned the other attractions within the clubhouse (perhaps ladied should be used these days but it doesn't sound right really).
Oh well so ends 2017 but fret not we will be back on Easter Sunday April 1st 2018 raring to go at 2pm.
Happy Christmas and a prosperous New Year to you all.
The latest (Winter 17) edition of our newletter is available for download from the link on the Members Page.
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.
