We even wished our very valued member Kate a Happy Birthday while she blew out the candles.
We would like to see more members at these events, as its getting to be the same exhibits all the time,
I’m sure there is some very interesting old machinery tucked away in your sheds that would bring back memories to the public, so how about giving it a bit of spit & polish & come along to enjoy our fun, looking forward to seeing you.
Thanks again to the members that enjoyed our weekend.
Apologies to any exhibitor I’ve missed, or exhibits I’ve missed.
