Local Area Group Launched!

The first meeting of the Ashover Light Railway Society’s Derbyshire local area group was held on Saturday, 21 February 2009, at 1pm, at the ‘The Old Poets Corner’ in Ashover.

The meeting was opened precisely at 1pm by Ralph Gibbons who was acting as chairman of the group. Ralph kindly agreed to chair this meeting and the subsequent one, but his duties as the Editor of Where the Rainbow Ends magazine do not allow him to take this position up in the long run. Any member wishing to contact Ralph and volunteer to run this group please feel free to do so! Contact details can be found in the back of the magazine.

The meeting had a healthy attendance of 20 to 30 members. In future, Local Area meetings shall also be announced via the website to keep members as up to date as possible. It is intended to hold meetings on a monthly basis with the next meeting date fixed for Saturday, 28 March 2009, at 1pm at The Old Poets Corner.
