Here are notable dates for this comimg year and hints about other pages worth looking at concerning the club, past, present and future.
During this year 2020 the club will hold various special events on certain public running days.

Have you noticed that one particular club member appears in all these pictures? Not stripes like in where's wally but in fetchings shades of orange.
Charity Day presentation
It 's front page news (see front page). Today 2nd October the
motley Wednesday maintenance crew were dragged away from tea and cakes to present
a cheque to Guildcare for the sum of £1955 that was raised on our Charity day in their aid.
You see we can polish up to a respectable degree when we try.
We are getting good at this
A member who shall remain nameless ( you know who you are Chris ) is adept at dumster diving or as others would claim, recycling. As a consequence he has presened us with cast iron bench ends that only needed cleaning and painting. All we had to do was buy the wood and behold a bench worth of a Royal Park has appeared.
Come on down when public running is on and try it out!
We have also made a companion for it at the other end of the patio (the paved bit by the front door) that again had used recycled ends. We had to buy more wood again though, it doesn't grow on trees.
Andrew our club president making adjustments to the safety valves on one of the club locomotives. Essential work that has to be carried out, in this instance
following a de-scaling of the locomotive's boiler. Over 10 years of hard work has left quite a deposit on *
her its insides, one of the drawbacks of the local hard water and why we have changed
to using rain water.
