This is 3 minutes walk from East Croydon Railway Station, local bus routes and Tramlink,
with car parking available on site.

Meetings start at 19.30 and finish by 22.00
with a break for refreshments.
A collection is made to defray expenses (recommended donation 4.00)
Meetings are open to all with an interest in Railways: visitors are always welcome.

As Pat Dennison has decided to stand down as Secretary, unless more people come forward for the committee to help run the branch, it will not continue beyond this programme, i.e. the June 2020 will be our last.
