[NOTE some further special events have been added to our 2017 calendar since this article was published. View the Activities Calendar for 2017 for the latest details.]
Our Activities Calendar for 2017 has now been published.
We have continued with our pattern of working every other weekend on the panel restoration, additional dates will be added if the volunteer manpower permits.
There are already some ‘dates for your diary’…
Saturday 7 and Sunday 8 January we will be attending the Kidlington Model Railway Show, Exeter Hall, Kidlington.
Saturday 18 February we will be attending the Kenavon Model Railway Show in Reading.
We would be delighted to receive any offers of help with manning the Swindon Panel trade stand at these shows. No special skills are required, it’s all about giving out leaflets, talking to passers-by, and sharing the news of our work. Don’t worry, you won’t be alone! It’s a great opportunity to help Swindon Panel and also visit the rest of the show yourself. Please let us know if you are free on any of those days and available to help out.
Saturday 11 March we are delighted to be hosting a second ‘Swindon Panel & Friends’ Reunion & Dinner, a repeat of our successful gathering event in April 2015. More details….
Saturday 3 June will be our AGM – always a popular opportunity for everyone to catch up and review the year of progress.
There are some other activities we hope to add in soon too – such as a trip to Romsey Signal Box, a very successful signal box preservation project with similar aims to ours which we hope we will be visiting in the spring, and the popular “Work Week” in August.
We hope to see you at Didcot in 2017!
