MoB Meetings cancelled (due to COVID-19 issues)

MoB Meetings cancelled (due to COVID-19 issues)

Mark Pilbeam, our Club President, sent the following email (today) to all club members but wanted to make sure that the information in the email was available for all who subscribe to this website and Facebook group page.

Mark wrote:

Sean has just found out that the ELC is now closed indefinitely as a precaution against COVID-19 transmission.  ELC will review the situation on April 13. This means no venue is available for our next meeting or any subsequent meetings until the pandemic subsides and the ELC can safely be re-opened. We will be informed of developments. I guess this means we will have to self-isolate in our sheds until further notice. 

Below is a scan of the notification sent (as a PDF) to the club and other organisations served by the Eastwood Leisure Centre:

For the moment we’ll need to become an online club (as will many others in the same situation).

To assist in continuing the caring and sharing If:

  • You have an article, history item, how-to or other modelling content that you’d like posted on the site, that will last for all time, make you famous, and see you lauded in the annals of modelling history, we’re more than happy to post it here on the site. Get in touch using our contact page. This will ensure that your email gets to me directly.
  • You’d like to share your work and photos on the Facebook page (link below in the Resources section) and you are a member of the group, then post away.

2020 MoB Model Show Postponed (due to COVID-19)

2020 MoB Model Show Postponed (due to COVID-19)

Thanks to the many people who’ve asked about the club’s Model Show and Buy, Swap and Sell event for 2020. Due the current COVID-19 epidemic and the likelihood of greater restrictions on events we have decided to hold the show until later in the year.

Mark Pilbeam, MoB Club President said today: “I’ve had a lot of feedback about the show and the consensus is that we postpone in view of the COVID-19 epidemic. Many modellers will not risk attending so let’s see if it can be staged a bit later when the panic is over.

For the moment, we’ll be working with our partners at the Eastwood Leisure Centre, and vendors to stage the show once the COVID-19 epidemic has passed. As soon as we have more information on a future date we’ll post it here and on the Facebook group.

Mobile browser problem – solved? You tell me!

So I thought that I had already fixed this issue two years ago…

Zim emailed me (somewhat recently) regarding issues when browsing the site from his mobile. Not as in (Bat)mobile, rather a handheld phone of said type.

Almost all of the wordpress themes have a mobile friendly setting in them and I remember testing this before we moved to our current theme. However, something had changed. When I checked today I found the issue (the mobile friendly setting it was turned off). I remedied that just now and the site is now working checked from my phone.

Would those of you who check the MoB site from your phones please confirm this update is working for you on your phone (either Android or Apple) by checking it out for me?

The fancy graphics are gone but you should get a list of posts, that you can click on. The menu works and is in the top left of the screen.

Much appreciated. And you can contact me by leaving a reply to the post at the bottom of the page. That will come through and I’ll get a copy in email.
