Held their annual exhibition at Stratton School recently. We had our joint stand again, though this time we were on the left hand side of the stage. This turned out to be a better position than by the refreshments hall, as it allowed us to have a larger screen for the automated slide show. Ann and Ivor helped out with the refreshments and this year we had plenty of helpers which enabled members to be relieved on the stand and at the door at regular intervalsThere were 16 layouts and 12 traders and society stands. The layouts were very diverse, depicting scenes form the south London suburbs, a Midland motive power depot set in the 1970's, an imaginary Norfolk port, a Welsh new town and a European flavour was added by a metre gauge line in Portugal and a tiny imaginary town in Germany. A wide range of scales/gauges were represented, enabling any visitors who of thinking of building their own layout to get an idea of the amount of space required for any particular chosen scale. As usual the standard of work on the layouts was outstanding and I gather it was a near record attendance.
