The Melksham Rail User Group is taking a stand at the afternoon (open from 1 p.m. to 5.30 p.m.) - this is an opportunity for us to reach the general population of Melksham who we rarely see at the station or on a bus, pass out information, and tell them about local public transport.

We can have up to five volunteers staffing the stand - and we'll do so in shifts - but I need to know names so I can pass them through in the next few days for our wristbands.  First two names are myself and $%^&* - together we had a very successful day on Saturday last at the Semington village fete. Looking for localish help (for at least 2 hours please!) - if that's you,  please let me know.

We'll have our "Melksham Rail Timetable - Summer and Autumn 2019" leaflet as our key distribution ... we'll have IsamBIRD Kingdom BrunOWL to attract people over.  Other materials including bus timetables, colouring sheets, and enquiry forms ... and new HiVis Melksham Rail User Group jackets or T shirts for all to wear.

Notwithstanding what I said to you in a personal message not 20 minutes ago ( Grin ) I could probably do an "early turn" if I could get away for the 1535 bus back to Chippenham.

Thank you.  I will almost certainly take you up on that; good to have you on first shift.  I'm 'light' on online time for a couple of days ... detailed plans at the weekend by p.m. and email. Good to have you.

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 ...
