Happy New Year – Access Update – March 2021 Edition – Daresbury Gazette

Happy New Year

Dear Members,

We trust the start to 2021 has been good to you with plenty of time in the workshop during the cold Winter Months.

Now with Spring almost upon us, the good news that the track is now reopen (limited availability, please read on for details) and the deviation work continues at pace is hopefully a good omen for 2021!

As it appears unlikely that we can have an AGM for some time, your committee have been communicating via email and hope to meet soon (virtual or in person depending on restrictions) to sort out various matters for the club – if you have any concerns please email your committee members.

COVID-19 – Track REOPEN – Limited Access – Latest Guidelines

The track will now reopen to 2 members from different households as from 9th March and to groups following previous “Rule of 6” from 29th March as per government guidelines – please use the group WhatsApp (or via email) to check when the track is clear for the pairing of members to visit the track and always follow social distancing guidelines.

Track and Trace via the WDMES Website will resume for the “Rule of 6” from the 29th March

 

However, limited access to the site for maintenance or security purposes may continue if the following rules are applied:

  1. One member working alone
  2. Two or more members from the same household (or support Bubble) working together
  3. A pair of members not from the same household

This does not have to be the same pairing on each occasion and social distancing must be maintained and track and trace register completed in the clubhouse. (Do not enter clubhouse for any other purpose)

If undertaking maintenance work please arrange between yourselves. Please use common sense if more than one pair turn up as there will not be an online booking system available during this lockdown.

You will need someone who has all the security codes for the gates and the containers and if you do not know them please contact the club chairman or a committee member

Please report any security issues at the site.

Unfortunately, I think that St Mary Magdalene Church Hall will not be available for the 3 months after Christmas and so there will be no Natter Nights or Speaker meetings in January, February or March 2021. However if the situation changes I will let you know.

The Deviation Update 3 – March 2021

The latest report – The Deviation Update 3- December 2020, is now available to read, and The Deviation Gallery has also been updated

You can find out more details in The Track Deviation Report below the Daresbury Gazette in The Daresbury Gazette Xtra, and All photos of this project can be found in The Deviation Gallery Winter 2020

 

Best wishes and keep safe and warm

BD Linaker, Chairman

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).

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 ...
