Urgent Appeal from the Friday Gang

The following is an urgent appeal from the 'Friday Gang' who desperately need to recruit new members to join the lineside cutting team which meets each Friday.  

Details are as follows..

When?
Every Friday (almost), starting 08.30 until early/mid afternoon.

Where?
Civil Engineers’ Department – drive through our car park into the overflow car park and just follow the roadway which will bring you to it!

What?
Lineside maintenance – the area between the track and the boundary fence on both sides of the track – 10 miles in all!   Machines, strimmers and hand tools (bow saws, pruners) all supplied.   Full training in the use of the machines given where necessary, but some prefer to only use hand tools.

Catering?
Bring your own lunch and a cup or mug.   We take large flasks of hot water, tea bags, coffee and biscuits with us for our mid morning coffee break, and to accompany our lunch.

Dress code?
Stout shoes or boots, otherwise nothing too smart, but suitable for the weather (cold, hot, damp), and gloves.

Further information?
If you like the sound of this, the job is certainly rewarding and enjoyable with good camaraderie, and a sense of fun.   

Please feel welcome to ring Jim Loe (885920) at the railway any Monday-Thursday morning for further detail, or turn up any Friday at 08.30.   Check beforehand to make sure that we will be out on your chosen Friday.


Coming from the mainland?
The Railway has very comfortable, modern volunteer accommodation available on site at Havenstreet which is booked in advance.
