Yes we are running again thanks to the Ipswich City Council. Our next running day is Sunday July 3rd. Our prices are due to rise to $3.00 each or 4 for $10.00.
After the third flood through the site in Six (6) months there was some doubt as to when we would be able to resume normal running days. However, the timely intervention by the ICC Council Division 1 Councilors, Sheila Ireland and Jacob Madsen and with the support of Mayor Teresa Harding, a band of hardworking dedicated council workers descended on the site and restored the track and grounds ready for running.
A very sincere thank you to the Ipswich City council, the ongoing support provided is greatly appreciated by the club members, our supporters and regular patrons of the club.
Children under five ride free but must be accompanied by a paying adult.
Remember fully enclosed footwear is essential to ride the trains – thongs and sandals are not OK
Reluctantly we have made the decision to increase the price for rides. The ever increasing costs that everyone faces every day are also impacting on the running costs of the club.
As of the 3rd of July running day the ride price will increase to $3.00 per ticket or 4 for $10.00. We do apologise for the increase but it is necessary if the club is to continue to operate.
The club wishes to express their sincere gratitude to Mayor Teresa Harding and all the Councilors for grants received by the club. The Council has very generously provide from Councilor Discretionary Funds an amount of $1286.40 for the purchase of paints and materials to assist with site maintenance and restorations.
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
