November 2021

ALRS members should have recently received issue 60 of Where The Rainbow Ends, the quarterly journal of the Society.

Inside you will find a report of this year’s AGM held at our Rowsley site. The rain held off for long enough to enable this to take place outdoors, with social distancing easy to achieve. After the main business part of the agenda was concluded members were able to witness the first public outing of the Jaywick locomotive under its own power. (Admittedly this was by courtesy of compressed air, progress towards steam operation continues)

October saw the Society’s first presence of the year at an external event in 2021 as all local shows etc. have been victims of the Covid pandemic. The event was organised by Ashover Parish Council, the Ashover History/Artefacts/Memorabilia exhibition in the parish hall. This was a well attended event.
