MARPLE TRANSPORT SOCIETY Programme of Meetings, 2015-6
It’s that time of year when you step inside out of the blazing sun (just joking!), when the Transport Society programme for the coming year arrives.

We try to time it early enough so that you haven’t booked up all your second Wednesdays already and late enough so that it doesn’t get lost among other correspondence.
The content has been varied to appeal to all interests, but we are always looking for suggestions for talks for next year, either by members themselves, or by useful contacts.

The usual stand-bys are shown at the turn of the year – our Christmas Quiz, which will be fairly short, to allow for the social side, and Members Slides in January. This is intended to include as many members as possible, so please try to limit your spot to, say 20 minutes. If you need more than this, why not use them as the basis for a talk, or ‘half-talk’, next year?

We look forward to seeing as many previous members as possible, together with new recruits, but please don’t think membership is a pre-requisite if you know someone who might like the occasional visit – who knows, they might become addicted !

It is also realised that, in the old cliché, ‘none of us is getting any younger’ but if you don’t feel able to attend regularly, by all means come when you can.

See you in September, or at other times.

Marple Transport Society Committee.
