Hi all, This is an update on the working arrangements for next Thursday 18th June.

Roger Date will be leading the Gobowen Yard clearance team, with Kevin, meeting at 10am. The aim is to deal with the vegetation and generally tidy up.
You will need Hi viz plus strong footwear and gloves or no entry to site, access must be via the building site and NOT off the platform !
Please let Roger and I know if you are intending to join us.
Clearing this site will be good from a PR point of view as it gets seen by local politicians, officials and railway enthusiasts who use Gobowen Station.

Here's the main article contained within the publication. Pages 5 and 6 had been torn out pre-delivery from my original copy.
