Highbank Community Centre, Farnborough Road Clifton NG11 9DG.

Despite it only being around 18 months it seems like a very long time ago.

 

Layouts will include:

Norman Colliery NCB, in O gauge.

Zlata Vychod Czech, in HO

Industrivej Danish HO 

plus others to be confirmed.

 

Traders will include

Sherwood Models 

Anoraks Anonymous

Further information and updates will be added as they become available.

I'm afraid that Mount Tabor won't be able to attend this time but should be back at our Spring show next March (you read it here first - we are planning a Spring show as well as an Autumn one!).

Dad dropped off some handbills with me yesterday which I’ll put in the mess room at work. 
 

Looking forward to the show, my first one since the last Nottingham one last year. All being well I will be over to the show on the Saturday.

Just got home from setting up the show. Some layouts and traders will be setting up tomorrow, but with what is there now it looks like a great show. Some absolute bargains on the club sales stand and, new for this show, we can take payment by contactless and the various mobile phone payment systems.

We had a very enjoyable weekend, visitor numbers were a were a little on the low side but considering we only confirmed we were going ahead at the beginning of August a good result.

Thanks to everyone who came, visitors, exhibitors and our wonderful catering team for their efforts, some lovely cakes on display and consumed.

Talk among the club Whatsapp group is of a pleasant return to a semblance of normality, I couldn't agree more, hopefully it continues.
