To lock the main door correctly, make sure the door is fully closed, the handle is then lifted up as far as it will go, the door can then be locked. As a final check depress the handle and if resistance is felt immediately all is OK. If the handle can be fully depressed the door has not been secured, repeat the procedure until the door is locked.
The last thing we need is unwanted visitors and all the problems that can follow. If you are the last person on site you are responsible for securing the site this includes checking all external doors to the Club house, Garage door, Signal box doors, Gardening shed, Raised/Ground level carriage sheds - these only need to be checked if they have been opened. If you are not sure then please take the time to double check - don’t assume they have been locked,
Thank you for taking the time to read this important notice

The school summer break is coming up and I shall be holding the next two Junior Club days on Tuesday the 31st July and Tuesday 28th August, running from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm for the benefit of the grandchildren. As previously all members with grandchildren (their own or friends) are welcome, just bring your lunch and locos if available.
