Title: 26th May 2021 - Options 24/7. 27th May (Melksham RUG) agendas and join codes
Post by: grahame on May 26, 2021, 10:13:09 am
Circular email - also here for reference (I have started a new thread to give me a clean URL / link).  Note - newcomers welcome - very welcome.  A lot going on but we'll be making a point of doing overviews and intros!

Hi, Folks - Both Option 24/7 (right across Wilsthire, buses) and Melksham Rail User Group members / interested parties.

Please find (below) joining details and running orders for
- Option 24/7 - Bus Back Better - this evening (26th) on Zoom at 19:30
- Melksham Rail User Group - tomorrow (27th) also on Zoom at 19:30.
All welcome and please share this email.

The last three months have been life-changing personally for many key players, and the changes and development plans in the transport field have been dramatic too. In a way, these changes and developments follow on from 2020, but in a way they are even more dramatic.  I should have had meeting details out much earlier, my apologies for not doing so.  We WILL be taking notes both evenings and give us a good way forward for the summer and beyond (surely we can't have the same storm of new things being thrown at us?) but would still REALLY appreciate you coming along if you can.

From my outbox this morning ...

Last week (27th May 2021), at our AGM, the Melksham Rail User Group became the Melksham Transport User Group - adding support for bus and other sustainable transport (and journeys that involve multiple connecting modes) to our rail interests, which remain unaltered. Links to minutes and notes as follows:
* Slides for both meetings on 27.5.2021 at http://www.mtug.org.uk/mrug_20210527.pdf
* AGM 27.5.2021 Minutes at http://www.mtug.org.uk/lib/MRUG_AGM_20210527.pdf
* Subsequent meeting minutes 27.5.2021 at http://www.mtug.org.uk/lib/MTUG_20210527.pdf
* Links to all meeting minutes from 2017 at http://www.mtug.org.uk/meetings.html

Immediate train departures are at the short URL http://melksh.am/trains , train timetable at http://melksh.am/timetable and taxi numbers at http://melksh.am/taxis .

Big welcome to Kevin Hayes as our admin secretary, and Roger Witt as our minute secretary. Also to Tom Price as a Melksham Town Council rep (in addition to Pat Aves) and Mark Harris as the rep for Melksham Without Parish Council.  Our officers team met a couple of days ago and we have a follow up list ;-).  Our website is now at mtug.org.uk and emails are chair@mtug.org.uk (Peter), vicechair@mtug.org.uk (Graham), secretary@mrug.org.uk (Kevin), treasurer@mtug.org.uk (Judith) and minutes@mtug.org.uk (Roger). All old email addresses, web site, etc (mrug) still work / forward.  First "lick of paint" applied to web site, much more as we follow up.  Excellent to have John, Lee and others still very much with us as part of the wider team too.

On "the trains", we have the recent announcement of the formation of "Great British Railways" and on the buses we have "Bus Back Better" - with Bus Service Improvement Plans to be written over the next few months. Both of these offer very real opportunities for coming years.  At the same time, we look forward to a busy summer informing and supporting returning and new users from Melksham, though with many unknowns and very different metrics just at present.

Next MTUG meeting - 14th July 2021, certainly available by Zoom and plans are for it to be a physical meeting too if we possibly can.  Please add the date to your diary.  And watch web sites, social media, etc for news, timetable updates, trip out suggestions and much, much more.
