Our social afternoon for all fully paid up members of The Friends of Vintage Trains on Saturday 20 August 2022 was at the Tyseley Working Men’s Club (opposite Tyseley Locomotive Works); free car parking was available in the Tyseley Locomotive Works car park. The Club, including the bar, was open from 1.30 with the talks beginning at 2.00. There was a break at around 2.45 for time to socialise, including a complimentary buffet and a raffle, and the talks continued at around 3.30 for an hour or so. Members were very welcome to bring a guest for whom there was no charge.
We had 2 guest speakers for this social:
- John Mayall from the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Steam Railway giving a talk about the railway
- Denis Chick, who will give a short address about the Transport Museum at Wythall, of which he is a trustee and Deputy Chairman
There was plenty of time for questions and discussion during the afternoon.
