There is a light at the end of the tunnel
It's not that someone's left the tunnel doors open nor is it an oncoming train but - - - - - -
the news that we will be running again soon!
(Subject to Pandemic controls lifting on June 21st) We are pleased to announce the commencement running of miniature trains at Field Place on Sunday 27th June, from 2.00 p.m. until 5.00 p.m.
Initially covid restrictions will prevent us from opening the canteen so initially there will be no cakes, hot / cold drinks or ice creams but at least it will be a start and things can only get better. Once we have more information we will be able to review the situation and make appropriate arrangements.
In addition we plan to open July 11th and 25th
August 8th and 22nd
September 12th and 26th
October 10th and 24th
Its too early to mention the Santa Run but there will be a charity day the details of which will be published later.
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.
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
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.
