If you haven't met us yet, or it's been a while since you have been to a WOW meeting then we'd love to see you.
Changes to Rail Station Cycle Parking
Following recent changes to cycle parking at Wolverhampton Rail Station, we have heard that :
40 spaces ( 20 hoops ) will be installed at the front of the station next to the Multi-storey car park
using existing CCTV present there.
These will replace the existing hoops at the front of the station, the shelter by Platform 6, and existing shelter directly at front of station
tbc. whether the new stands will be sheltered
Will be happening towards end of June
More info to follow closer to the changeover date.
Wolves on Wheels now has around 70 supporters; mostly in Wolverhampton with a few further afield. For a long time our meetings have been held at venues in the city centre or West Wolverhampton; we could do with moving around a bit to give more of our supporters the chance of coming to a meeting held at a convenient place for them.
Following a suggestion by a couple of supporters we made a start on this in May at The Vine in Wednesfield (and may well return at a future date). If you know of somewhere that you think might be suitable to use for one of our social meetings please let us know : firstname.lastname@example.org .
Ideally, a venue would:
Not be too busy on our normal meeting time of Wednesdays 7-9 pm,
it's good if we can sit round a table and hear each other.
Be within Wolverhampton or only just over the boundary.
Have a suitable place to lock up bikes.
Have internet access.
(It does not need to be a pub; for example we have used the cafe in the Lighthouse Theatre)
