Tier Risk System Update – October Edition – Daresbury Gazette

Dear Members,

As you know there has been a lot of discussion about the latest Covid 19 restrictions and the effect on our club’s use of the track at Daresbury, which is in Halton, a very high risk area (Tier 3).

If a member is a resident within a Very High risk area, you should not travel out and we advised against coming to the Daresbury Track, in the interest of member safety.

If your a member and resident outside the very high risk area (Medium or High) you can travel in and out but use common sense and observe all rules applied to the area in which you are resident, as well as the rules which we have implemented at the track.

The club house is officially shut it will ONLY be open to turn on the signals. You must always sign the attendance register online on the website for Track and Trace purposes. The rule of 6 still applies as well as masks, hand sanitiser, and keep distance from other households etc.

We are now allowing a “Track Maintenance/Working Party” group of upto 6 members to attend the Daresbury Track as well as the “Loco Running” or “Boiler Test” groups (also upto 6 members) – both groups and bubbles must all continue to social distance and keep apart as much as possible whilst at the Daresbury Track. This means there can be upto 12 members at the track, but each must keep within the bubble and social distance.

If we use common sense and stick to the rules which apply to us there should not be a problem.

If members are not comfortable visiting the club (even with these changes) you should not do so.

 

BD Linaker, Chairman

The New Normal – September Edition – Daresbury Gazette

Welcome to a somber September Edition of the Daresbury Gazette - In out in out this is life whilst living with the pandemic. It's no fun at all we as a society are denied social contact with each other and our wonderful hobby. When lockdown was finally lifted to allow groups to travel and meet up our track really did come back to life with unusual amounts of engines turning up for testing and running so much so we ran out of steaming bays. It was wonderful to finally roam around our track and marvel at how the tunnel has grassed over it looks great. Craig finally got the chance to put his french drain system into reality and it has worked out marvelously it drained the parking area a treat during the torrential downpours in August. Barry Linaker and myself met up with the powers that be at our ...

Engineering a plenty! – July Edition – Daresbury Gazette

Welcome to a rather busy July Edition of the Daresbury Gazette - After a period of around 4 months things started to get back to some sort of normal after the Covid 19 lockdown. A club members day was arranged up at the track on July 12 which under normal circumstances would have been the Steam Fair. There was a really good turnout i think 13 engines present. As the Covid rules were to be had heard to a hot plate was provided for members to cook their own meats etc the club provided the buns and condiments so everyone had a jolly good day. The committee held our first meeting in the clubhouse since lock down. A number of issues were dealt with i.e membership renewals and the lack of the annual AGM. It was sad to hear our secretary has decided to step down with immediate notice. Brian has done a great job in his term . If it ...
