West Wilts Rail User Group - 2023 Program - as planned at Committee meeting, 6.12.2022, provisional.

* January 2023 - Newsletter
* Wednesday 1st March 2023 - Annual General Meeting and a passenger / rail community speaker
* April 2023 - Newsletter
* Wednesday 31st May 2023 - A rail industry speaker
* Saturday 8th July 2023 - Group trip by train to Weymouth
* August 2023 - Newsletter
* Wednesday 20th September 2023 - A passenger / rail community speaker
* October 2023 - Newsletter
* Wednesday 29th November 2023 - A rail industry speaker

* All public meetings at the Bethesda Church Hall, near Trowbridge station.  It has proven itself excellent postCovid whereas other venues we have used have moved on and are now better suited for other types of events rather than ours.  Timings have (and should continue) to connect with return trains to West Wilts stations; for Melksham we continue to ask for a late train (wouldn't it be good to celebrate that on 31st May?) but in the meantime can arrange alternatives for members.

* Strategy is alternating "industry" and "enthusaist-ish" talks.  Industry are GWR (Great Western Railway) / Network Rail / SWR» (South Western Railway - about) / DfT» (Department for Transport - about) types, perhaps CRPs (Community Rail Partnership). Enthusiastics are are history, preservation, journey type talks.

* And whilst we really hope that industrial action will have ceased before the next public meeting, policy is for meetings to go ahead even if trains are not running.
