Strathaven Miniature Railway
Due to Covid restrictions and the lack of volunteers, we were unable to start our new Junior section for the railway in the last year
But…… now we are planning to run this from Easter to the September weekend next year (2022) on a Tuesday evening from 18.30-19.30 for 6, 7, 8, years of age and 19.30- 20.30 for 9, 10, 11 years of age. Unless two siblings from one family cover both age groups, we would probably have both in the younger child’s section, unless the parent is happy to bring one for one session and the other to the second and accompany both.
As a taster session, we are going to run a trial, during the October school week, on Tuesday the 12th of October with two sessions for each age group. The first will be from 11.00 to 12.00 and the second session would be at 13.30 to 14.30 weather permitting
If this is something that your child / children would be interested in, can you please contact the secretary on the following email address – firstname.lastname@example.org
He will then send out more details about these two sessions.
This will be strictly limited to 6 children per age group per session and split into 2 groups (6 x aged 6, 7, 8 and 6 x aged 9, 10, 11) in the morning with the same for the afternoon session.
After the trial session we would hope that the participants would then be interested in coming back in 2022 to learn about the locomotives and how to drive and look after them
Kind regards IAN (secretary)
