August Club Night

The August club night on the 5th was a return visit to the Kingfisher Fish Bar at Walcott for a takeaway supper eaten on the sea wall whilst observing social distancing. There was a good turnout of members and it was nice to see some for the first time since lockdown.

The fish bar was really busy with quite a long queue snaking around the building, and with the closing time fastapproaching I was concerned that I wouldn’t get my cod and chips! However, I needn’t have worried as David had pre- ordered our meals and before long our names were being called out to come and collect the excellent fish and chips from the serving hatch. We found some space on the sea wall and caught up with everyone as we ate our meals.

Thanks go to David for organising and nice evening.

Sunday Run Out to Whitwell Station, 16th August 2020

August saw David organise another Sunday run out. We met up at Wroxham, (or actually Hoveton if you want to be pedantic) but not in our usual Roy’s car park, which was unexpectedly closed. Once David was sure that everyone coming was present, and not parked up somewhere else, we set off, following the Johnsons along some great roads towards Aylsham, Reepham and finally our first stop at Whitwell Station.

After a well deserved coffee and cake, we were given a very informative tour of the engine shed and yard by a young man who works full time at the North Norfolk Railway, but also repairs the engines at Whitwell Station in his spare time – that is serious dedication to the preservation of historic railways.

After the tour we made our way to the White Horse at Crostwick, where we enjoyed a very nice meal in the patio area.

Many thanks go to David for organising another great day out in these strange times.
