The Council has also provided an additional grant of $2000 from the Covid 19 Ipswich Community Operational Support Funding Program to help with our operational costs, this will help offset the losses the club has experienced due to the lack of income during the past 18 months.
All members sincerely thank the Ipswich City Council for the assistance provided to the club, it does really make a difference to small non profit organisations such as our.
Thank you Ipswich City Council
We returned to public running on Sunday September 5th 2021 and with social distancing as part of the Covid Management plan the wait time for train rides was a bit longer that we would have liked. We thank everyone who attended for their patience and the manner in which everyone behaved on the day, face masks were worn and everyone was happy to keep within their family groups for the train rides .
At this stage our next scheduled running day will be on Sunday November 7th from 10.00am to 2.00pm but again we remind everyone that the situation could change at anytime, hopefully it will only change for the better, but in the meantime it will be necessary for all visitors to the site to comply with current State Government guidelines, log in on arrival, make sure you have a mask with you, practice social distancing and sanitise regularly. We will monitor the numbers on site and if necessary take action to maintain the numbers at an acceptable level.
We do look forward to more visitors on site, enjoying the club facilities and riding the trains but please remember, as well as the Covid requirements,
Fully Enclosed Footwear must be worn to ride the trains –
Thongs and Sandals are not acceptable.
