We will also attend meetings where we are asked, and on that note, I would like to thank you for your invitation to speak at the CLPG's AGM in Moreton-in-Marsh on Saturday, May 12. I would like to do so and am grateful for the opportunity to address members directly.

CLPG has over 1600 members ... including a number who visit us here on the Coffee Shop.   I don't know if they welcome guests at their AGM (so how wide this "Meet the Manager" opportunity is), but I'm flagging up the date anyway for members and perhaps wider.  Can someone from CLPG follow up on due course / let us know if this is "members only", "guests by invite" or public?   Thanks!

Link to last year's AGM: http://www.clpg.org.uk/blog/the-39th-agm/


Edit to add - Members only, I'am afraid - see follow up

Update; I have heard from a member of the committee and due to space limitations at the venue, this is "members only".

As it's the 40th anniversary / AGM they're expecting a busy meeting and "those attending just about squeeze into the venue normally" ....  Angry

It is usually a tight squeeze, and with it being the 40th Anniversary year, we are expecting it to be extremely cosy. Apologies to everyone. There isn't a larger venue along the line available that is walkable from a station. Unfortunately, I have to be in Edinburgh for another AGM in which I am a required attendee.

You can find out more about how this forum works [here] - that will link you to a copy of the forum agreement that you can read before you join, and tell you very much more about how we operate. We are an independent forum, provided and run by customers of Great Western Railway, for customers of Great Western Railway and we welcome railway professionals as members too, in either a personal or official capacity. Views expressed in posts are not necessarily the views of the operators of the forum.

As well as posting messages onto existing threads, and starting new subjects, members can communicate with each other through personal messages if they wish. And once members have made a certain number of posts, they will automatically be admitted to the "frequent posters club", where subjects not-for-public-domain are discussed; anything from the occasional rant to meetups we may be having ...
