MEMBERS PLEASE NOTE
The Club site at Westbury is open to members six days a week (Wednesday is a working party day). Gate codes have been advised in the Newsletter. The Clubhouse will be open for use on Friday mornings and Saturday running days.
Boiler testing: many members have been unable to have their steam boilers certificated recently due to the lockdown. If you wish to run an engine soon please please arrange a test in advance, there can be no guarantee of ad hoc testing being available at the last minute in the future.
WE ARE NOW ABLE TO RESTART PUBLIC EVENTS
We are delighted that after a lot of hard work catching up on maintenance we are able to offer running days to the public again on the first Saturday of each month, from 11am to 4pm, starting Sat 3rd June.. We have also completed the build of our new ground level 5″ line around the site as a new attraction.
We run several events during the year that are open to the public to showcase some of our activities and to provide a good day out, especially for families.
