October meeting

The meeting was a standard Association review of business, sparsely attended.
The update of the web site was reported on. Items are required to keep this up to date, particular from those with the intimate knowledge of the items on which we are campaigning. Also any photographs.
On services, nothing is reported on Sunday services, and cannot be anticipated until December anyway with the new timetable. On rolling stock, TfW had provided some general commentary on their plans and this is on the web site. It is still not clear on the details of the change out on the HOWL and the shuttle. The Chairman will ask.
On stations, NR have been in touch about the step free access to the platform at Whitchurch and the Chairman will be talking to them. He will also mention the condition of the roof on platform 7/8 at Crewe which is not good.
The recent incident at Wrenbury of passengers crossing the line whilst gates were shut was discussed. More detail is needed.
There was a discussion on GDPR. The conclusion of the meeting was to prepare a privacy policy based on members consent, and implement this in May 2020 at renewal time. The object is to keep things simple.
Raifuture have an event in October in Shrewsbury and this is reported elsewhere.
The next meeting will be on 27 November. Chairman will invite TfW.
