Next meeting: Monday 27 March 2017.
Twenty three people attended our February meeting, numbers probably being depleted by many people having met up at the last – and definitely the best- show at Shepton Mallet a few days previously. Many thanks are due to the team who have put on such a splendid show at Shepton for so many years, and the last one was definitely one to remember. Some of the people attending our meeting had been at Shepton and bought many interesting items – too many to list – that were running on our test tracks. As usual, much cake and coffee was consumed whilst numerous conversations about narrow-gauge matters were taking place in the friendly atmosphere that we endeavour to create.
The group had its own display table at Shepton, though we were rather tucked away in a corner of a classroom a long way from the main hall. Nevertheless, many flyers were handed out for our show in Tewkesbury, which will now take over as the largest narrow-gauge show in the South West of England. Keep checking our website www.narrowgaugetewkesbury.co.uk for the latest updates and additional information. Several operators have offered layouts using the Contacts page on that site, and if you have anything suitable please contact us. Confirmed layouts will also continue to be added to the 009 Society website Diary page.
You are 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 27 March and 24 April starting at 19.30 hours at Twyning village hall near Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire, GL20 6DF.
