Progress Report Friday 26th July 2019

Dear All,

Wirksworth was slightly cooler today but still very hot for the time of year. We were very thin on the ground today with volunteers but I'm happy to report it was quality not quantity that ensured our many visitors were well looked after. Unfortunately Helen Hills our Catering Manager took ill whilst on holiday and was unable to attend today but her team rallied round in her absence to provide afternoon tea services for two very appreciative parties. We wish Helen a speedy recovery.

We played host to three pre-booked groups today; St Helens Ladies Guild from Darley Dale, The Woman's Institute from the Allestree branch and a retirement party from Derby County Council.

A special mention should go to our Operational Staff who, despite the uncomfortable heat, delivered a first class service and ensured the train service ran to schedule. Today's service was supported by the Association shop, miniature railway, station cafe, crossing gate keepers and booking hall staff.

All the best,

Tom
