Leeming Bar — 29 June 2019

A Fun-filled Day in the Yorkshire Dales for Armed Forces Personnel, Friends and Families

When
10:00 am to 5:00 pm
Location

The day will serve all Service families in this area; this includes the Service locations of Catterick Garrison, Marne Barracks, Alanbrooke Barracks, RAF Leeming and RAF Lynton-on-Ouse. Families will independently travel to one of the Wensleydale Railway Stations of Leeming Bar, Bedale, Finghall, Leyburn or Redmire and can enjoy free travel for the day, embarking and disembarking according to their wishes.
A special steam-hauled train is to be hired for the day with an ex WD locomotive circa 1945.
There will be music and fun activities on the trains and at stations and guidance as to other activities and attractions offered by other providers (some at a discount) near to the stations. Refreshments will be available to purchase or families may wish to bring a picnic.
The free travel and activities applies to all serving Service personnel, Reservists and Veterans and their immediate families; however, friends, other relatives and other interested parties may also take part if pre-booked, with a modest charge applied.
