Members day to Tywyn

Wednesday, September 29th, 2010

There have been several discussions at committee meetings about holding another ALRS trip out after the enjoyable day we all had at Leighton Buzzard in April 2008. (see the gallery section for photos of that day)

Recently an invitation to attend the Lincolnshire Coast Light Railway during its 50th year of operation during September was taken up at short notice by a few members.

We have negotiated with the Talyllyn Railway to charter a train for ALRS members in April 2011;  the 60th year of railway preservation per se, as for those who didn’t know, it all started there.

The confirmed date is Saturday 16th April.

The plan is, the chartered bus will leave Clay Cross, (approx 8.30) with an additional pick up in Alfreton to take members from the Ashover area there; you will of course be able to make your own way there if you prefer. There will be time to look around the Narrow Gauge Railway Museum based in Tywyn as well as time to explore the engineering headquarters at Pendre. Then a full trip up and down this lovely line.

We are in discussions to see if we can have a little surprise or two in store for participants who choose to join us.

AGM 2009 Announced

Sunday, February 8th, 2009

Due to the due date of our Chairman’s next addition to his family the date of this years AGM has been put back.

Given the fact that around the time of the New Year our membership had reached the 300 mark, we have taken the decision to hold it in the Amber Hall, Ashover Parish Hall.

The date is Sunday 28th June 2009, with a 1.30pm start.

Last years meeting room, the Fabric Room has also been booked that day to hold an exhibition of the ALR and ALRS; more details to follow in the next few weeks.
