The Club, as an organised activity, meet every month and undertake tasks around the railway particularly at Weybourne & in the engine & carriage sheds. Such as the various aspects of cleaning engines, cleaning & minor tasks relating to the preservation of engines, carriages & wagons. Assistance is offered in helping with all aspects of the railway including vegetation clearance, station maintenance, running Weybourne’s model railway.
All juniors are supervised by responsible adult volunteers who with other railway staff nurture & raise awareness by instruction & doing all aspects of railway safety & operation revolving around (PTS) personal trackside safety instructions. This includes the requirement for all juniors to have a specified Personal Protective Equipment kit including overalls & safety boots.
There are plenty of opportunities for helping outside of the regular meetings where individual members have recently been involved in such tasks as travelling on the train distributing leaflets, under the supervision of the Guard, becoming Travelling Ticket Inspectors and assisting with Special Events.
All members of the Junior Club are encouraged to migrate to becoming fully-fledged volunteers once the appropriate age limit has been reached and they are able to undertake the various responsibilities on the railway.
Membership is available to boys or girls between the ages of 10 and 15.
