M5-M50 Narrow Gauge Modellers – report 27 June 2016

Next meeting: Monday 25 July. Contact Nicolas Wheatley, 07773 867782
Apologies for the lack of a report on our May meeting, there was a clash between the
deadline for submission of reports and the date of our meeting, which came afterwards. Our
June was attended by 28 people, including a welcome return by Richard S after a period of
absence caused by illness. As usual, Martyn Davies brought along a selection of 009 goods
from Hereford Model Centre, including some new items from Peco, giving the opportunity for people to purchase desired items, and various locos were running on the test tracks.
The dedicated and now live website for the show in Tewkesbury in October 2017
(www.narrowgaugetewkesbury.co.uk) continues to be expanded and updated though there is still much information to be added as plans for the show progress. A working party was set up to develop the many different aspects of staging a much larger event than the group has ever attempted.
You are assured of a warm welcome at our meetings, in the company of like-minded narrow-gauge enthusiasts. We meet on the last Monday of the month, our next meetings being on 25 July and 29 August (Bank Holiday) starting at 19.30 hours at Twyning village hall near Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire, GL20 6DF.

Apologies for the lack of a report on our April meeting, your reporter was on holiday and other people being away reduced the numbers attending to only 21. However, holding our May meeting on a Bank Holiday did not affect our numbers, as thirty people turned up including some making a welcome return after periods of absence. As usual, Martyn Davies brought along a selection of 009 items from Hereford Model Centre giving the opportunity for people to purchase desired items, and various locos were running on the test tacks..

The dedicated and now live website for the show in Tewkesbury in October 2017 (www.narrowgaugetewkesbury.co.uk) continues to be expanded and updated though there is still much information to be added as plans for the show progress. A plea was made for more assistance with the organisation and hopefully people will be motivated to offer more help soon!
