Have you missed coming to the club? Have you missed the comradery and laughter? If you can answer yes to these questions why not book yourself in to come along on Wednesday or a Sunday?
As is historical, Wednesday morning is traditionally the time that we get stuck into any maintenance work that needs to be done. This can be anything from gardening, weeding, brick laying, engineering to tidying up the signal boxes. Whatever your skill set we can find a job for you! Whilst the club was in “lock down” the grounds and outside buildings got extremely dusty and neglected. The Council members did come in and carried out a few small jobs such as painting the steaming bay canopy as well as some track repairs. There is still an awful lot more to be done before the club looks its usual bright and cheery self, but we cannot do this alone. We really do need our members to roll their sleeves up and come along on a Wednesday or a Sunday morning to help us keep YOUR club ship shape.
If physical work is not for you have you thought about volunteering at our very successful parties? We have sadly had to cancel all this year’s bookings but if you have never helped out at one of these before and would like to get involved however long you wish to stay for we would be delighted to have you. Speak to Graham Wilmot who is the party organiser who can give you more information on the various jobs that are carried out on the day. The parties really are a joy to volunteer at and are great fun. I think we get as much enjoyment from these as do our visitors.
So, if you are at a loose end on a Wednesday morning and fancy helping the club please let Ian know so he can keep an eye on numbers and find you a job to do. Bring your loco along if you want a steam in the afternoon.
Please note: Social distancing will still need to be observed when you visit the club.
