new s&d meeting this Saturday
Apologies to you all but our meeting this Saturday has had a change of venue thanks to Shillingstone being no longer able to offer us suitable meeting facilities (don't ask!!)
So we've switched it, very appropriately, to the RAILWAY HOTEL at Blandford, who have offered us the facilities for FREE! The landlord is very angry that Blandford is currently rail-less, a ridiculous situation that needs to change quickly. We all know that there is loads of pent up support for the trains returning, and the pub were only too keen to have us come along. The full address details are
The meeting will be between 4pm and 6pm.
It's important that we all show that the return of the S&D will mean more money being spent along the route so please try to get to the pub/hotel a bit early so you can buy a drink or two!
This has definitive echoes of the first S&D pioneers and their inaugural meeting in a Blandford hotel that led to the construction of the Somerset Central - history repeating itself!
