London Area Group
Area Group Outing. The Area Group Outing will be on Saturday 27th June 2015 to the Mid Hants Railway in Hampshire.
The group will travel on the 09.23 South West Trains service from London Waterloo to Alton, (anybody from Clapham Junction should catch the 09.19 from there and change at Surbiton), and to catch the 10.50 Mid Hants train from Alton. The Mid Hants Railway is operating a two-train service, and working Talyllyn Volunteer Grade Card holders get reduced rate travel on the Mid Hants Railway.
The last Mid Hants train of the day arrives back at Alton at 16.28 and connects into the 16.44 South West train departure to Waterloo.
Steampipes. Steampipes this year will be on Monday 30th November 2015, at our usual venue of Friends House on the Euston Road. This will be our last show at Friends House due to rising costs.
The Committee have decided that ticket prices will be held at last year’s levels for this final show, £11 for Adults and £5.50 for under 16’s. The tiocket office will be open in late August and details will appear here.
The 2014 show attracted 360 paying customers, down by only 10 on the previous year
The Area Christmas Dinner will be on Monday 7th December this year, once again at the Betjeman Arms restaurant at St Pancras International station, more details later in the year. The 2014 dinner saw a record attendance, so we must be doing something right!
