M5-M50 Narrow Gauge Modellers – report 23 February 2015

Next meeting: Monday 30 March.

Fortunately our village hall venue is large enough to cope with the growing number of people attending our meetings, 30 this time, though car park space is becoming a problem. Arrive early, seems to be the answer! We welcomed new recruit Roger, and were pleased to see some members who had been absent for a while. Almost half the group had been at Shepton Mallet two days before our meeting, enjoying another excellent show with the best narrow gauge content in south-west England and meeting fellow NG enthusiasts from far and wide.

The preparations for our Open Day on 10 October were discussed again, and a long discussion was held about plans to hold the October 2017 open day at a school in Tewkesbury. There was agreement in principle to develop this proposal though the potential difficulties of a large expansion all in one go were debated.

By the time of our next meeting Spring will have arrived, hopefully with better weather, but in any event you can be assured of a warm welcome at our meetings, in the company of like-minded narrow-gauge enthusiasts. We meet on the last Monday of the month, our next meetings being on 30 March and 27 April, starting at 19.30 hours at Twyning village hall near Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire, GL20 6DF.
