Good to see a couple of dozen people last Saturday who braved it out from Severnside to the branch AGM at Dilton Marsh, with rail replacement buses between Bath Spa and Westbury.  Also a delight to see some more local attendees who had 'picked up' on the event and realised it was public and free  Grin .  That showed a real opportunity for someone to reach local communities to help inform them.  Interestingly, little overlap between Coffee Shop, West Wilts Rail User Group, all the CRPs in the area, and the people drawn in.  Thinking around the room, I think there were just three of us with other railish connections in the area, and all three of us are members of lots of groups and communities.

The next step in diversifying the RailFuture Severnside branch away from a handful of Saturday afternoon meetings in major centres each year ... a weekday evening one, looking to be practical / attractive in Bristol.

Monday 10th June, St.Michael's Church Centre, near Bristol Parkway station at 7 pm.

I will add further details as I hear them (or, others, please add if you know) ... Nigel did announce a speaker on Saturday, but I'll admit to having been so busy ensuring my talk was properly set up that I don't recall what it was.

No doubt 10th June will be all welcome, free of charge, and an interesting evening for those who are already somewhat informed on rail stuff. The team is taking steps in the right direction to include / welcome guests too.
