Society Diary

Hot Topics:

  • Saturday Meetings Re-Instated. As a result of yesterday’s announcements the Welsh Government now allows groups of up to 30 people who are not shielding to congregate outdoors for group activities, while observing appropriate social distancing (currently 2 metres). This means that we can resume Saturday meetings at the club.

    There will be strict limitations on the use of the clubhouse. No food or drink will be provided or consumed in the clubhouse and access will be limited to one at a time for the toilets. Members will be responsible for their own hygiene while using these facilities. Hot water will be available and hand sanitizers will be located in the clubhouse and by the station.

    The danger of covid-19 has not gone away, and many of our members are at more than average risk due to age and/or ill-health. Members are responsible for taking their own decisions about attending the club and behaving responsibly while there. Masks are not obligatory, but wearing one is becoming an indication that you take other people’s safety seriously.

    It seems we can at last start to emerge from our shells and start the long road back to normality. Modified rapture! See you on Saturday.

  • A private Society "chat room" has been set up so we can stay in touch. This is for members only. If you have not already received an email inviting you to join, please contact
  • The new 2020 code of practice for operating miniature railways is now in the library. This replaces HSG216 from 2001.

Wednesday Evenings

Phil is now the coordinator for Wednesday meetings. On Wednesdays, "Bitz" means that members bring objects or subjects for discussion to the clubhouse. Wednesday meetings start at 1930 hrs and finish at about 2115 hrs with tea and cake (unless shown differently).
