In my view this is one of the best shows in the South East and not to be missed.  A definite date in my calendar.

Every year a brilliant exhibition, always have great layouts and traders in attendance and this year looks to be no exception. For such a well respected quality exhibition, for which I've always heard fantastic coments about from everyone I've spoken to about it, I can't understand why more people don't attend, although that is a good thing as it's a very relaxed atmosphere and perhaps those in attendance can pick up some real bargins on the club stand.

Grove Park is EM not 00 as I originally listed it as.

Here is a picture of Grove Park as a taster:-

Couldn't agree more. This has always been a first class show and, judging by the layouts booked, this year looks to be another belter. The considerable amount of second hand items they will have for sale sounds interesting too, I'm sure most people could find something there to spend their hard earned on! From past experience I can really recommend this show. Get there if you can, I'm sure you won't be disappointed!

Come on everybody.  This excellent exhibition deserves our support.  If you can attend this weekend, then make an effort.  I can promise you that you will be pleasantly surprised.  I have no connection with the club other than as a very satisfied visitor to this exhibition.  For the life of me I don't understand why it is not better attended.

I shall be operating on Empingham on Saturday. If I might enquire how to get there? Is there access for a bike across Rainham Creek from Ferry Lane to Creek Way?

I do not know the area that well.

I have looked at Google Map and satellite and there does not appear to be a link between Ferry Lane and Creek Way.

Looks like you have to go to New Road, A1306 and then left into Marsh Way. Then straight on to CEME, which is located just the other side of the A13.

Just got back home from the clubroom having prepared the gear we need to take to CEME tomorrow afternoon.

(Large V&T is the order of the day).

Then prepare some signs for printing in the morning.

I have confirmed that what I have said is correct from one of our more local, to the area, members.

Just got back home from setting up the show, some other members are still at CEME. I had to drop the van off.

This afternoon there was a major fire where 120 firefighters were called to tackle a blaze at a scrap metal yard south of the A13 near the venue.

On the way there the traffic was very slow along the A13, because of the 'Swann Neckers'. I was in the nearside lane only doing about 10mph when some idiot in front of me stopped, his arm went out the drivers window with his phone in his hand, presumably to take a photo. Blo--y Idi--

Anyway the fire is nearly out and everything is OK for tomorrow.

I am on the refreshments so come and say hello.

Andy.

Can't make it, I'm afraid. If I was in London I'd re-arrange my schedule in order to go.

 

Have a good one. Pete.
