Matt Stevens' Newstone- featured in the Junior Modeller section of a recent Railway Modeller.

 

BTW our dates for the NEXT two shows are confirmed as follows-

 

2020 April 4th and 5th

 

2021 March 27th and 28th.

 

The shift in 2021 is because Easter falls on our "regular" weekend and the venue already has a booking for the second weekend in April.

I've just been round Cotgrave talking to local traders about advertising in the show guide.

 

Every one I visited was not only willing but PLEASED to support us.  Very many thanks one and all.  The adverts pay for the guide and mean we can give a 16-page A5 booklet free.

 

Just a reminder.

16 quality layouts, 8 traders, demonstrations.  NEW CATERERS.

 

6th and 7th April at Cotgrave Welfare NG12 3PJ.

My first visit to this show today, and thoroughly enjoyed it. A good range of exhibits and traders for the size of show, and “Lincoln Central” will be quite something when it’s finished. 

 

All being well I’ll be back next year for sure. Well done.

I would like to thank Les and the team for organising a very enjoyable show. It was very well organised and seemed to attract a good crowd, especially on Saturday. It was the first time I have attended a two day event as a trader but was made to feel very welcome. I am looking forward to returning next year.

Very many thanks to all who helped to make this year's show the best one we have done so far.

 

Attendance subject to confirmation was 635, about 60 up on our previous best ever.   All we need is about 300 people to attend next year who haven't been before - particularly on Sunday as the split was 400 Sat 200 Sun.

 

Next year the same weekend, April 4th and 5th.

 

All the very best

Les
