LNWR Society Future Events

Due to the Covid 19 Emergency and following the government’s advice, the Society’s Study Centre is now closed to the public. We hope to open sometime in September. If you have an urgent enquiry please email the librarian. As soon as we know when we can open again we will make an announcement on this website.

With reference to the forthcoming Annual Steam Up due to be held at Sutton Coldfield Model Engineering Society on 19th September 2020, notification has been received from the Secretary that the Board of the Society have decided that ‘due to the continued uncertainty surrounding Covid-19 they have decided to cancel all events for September 2020 including the Steam Up’ they are full of apologies and hope that we understand. Hopefully the booking will be arranged for Saturday 18th September 2021 but this is yet to be confirmed.

I spoke to Rachael Bickerton at the Crewe Arms around an hour ago and conveyed my decision to her that, “having considered the continuing uncertainty surrounding Covid-19, the possibility of a second wave this autumn, with no clear sign of a vaccine being available before the winter this year and, with the average age of the members who support this event being in the high seventies, I have taken the most responsible and sensible decision which is to cancel this years event”. The Luncheon will recommence on Saturday 20th November 2021 with this year's program. Kind regards, Ken Wood

The Study Centre & Archive will be opening to members and the public on 21st September 2020 and 24th October, 14th Novemberand 12th December 2020.
