Events happening today
21 November 2020 22 November 2020The Committee has met, cogitated, and discussed our forthcoming show in November. Whilst we could manage,just, to put the show on, with a large proportion of our visitors being of a certain age and worried about visiting, we could suffer a large drop in numbers attending. Without numbers, the show would in all probability present us with a loss. I know all of you will be disappointed and some of you not surprised at its cancellation.
It was with a heavy heart that we decided that St Patcham 2020 will not take place. The decision has been taken now so that visiting layouts and traders can be advised well in advance, and we do not have to payout insurance and hall fees.
Next year's show, being in the year of the Club's 50th anniversary, will be an excellent opportunity to show ourselves to the outside world and rejoice the great hobby of railway modelling.
With no show, we are considering the idea of holding a mini show on Club premises on the Sunday of that weekend 22nd hopefully using the station waiting room at London Road, showing our two exhibition layouts. Of course, we will be abiding by whatever anti-covid guidelines are current at the time, and with Southern's agreement! We are aiming to still having our annual sales day this year on Saturday 22nd August, again working within current anti-covid guidelines.
Our 2020 Exhibition will be held on Sat 21st and Sun 22nd November our 42nd annual show.
Open 1000 to 1700 on Saturday and 1000 to 1600 Sunday

From the club
At our Committee meeting today it was reluctantly decided to cancel this year’s Exhibition at Patcham Community Centre on 20th/21st November. The continuing uncertainty around events open to the public along with the possibility of a number of members not being available led us to the conclusion it was best to cancel.
We will be putting on a Sale Day & mini Exhibition on Saturday 20th from 14.00 to 17.00 and again on Sunday 21st from 10.00 to 16.00. This will be at the club rooms in London Rd Railway Station, Shaftesbury Place, off Ditchling Rise, Brighton. BN1 4QS.
Admission will be FREE. A couple of club layouts will be in operation., there will be a sales stand and refreshments will be available.
