The Surrey Support Group attended the one day Eastbourne Model Railway Exhibition on Saturday, 9th April. The stand raised a lot of interest amongst the visitors that will hopefully result in two new people joining the L&BR Trust. Sales were modest, the ‘Perchance’ DVD, ‘Thomas’ toys and the current issue of the L&BR Magazine were the main items of interest.
Members staffing the stand were Geoff Kingate and Phil Rawstron, assisted by Bernie Dobson. They were treated to free teas and coffee all day, a ploughmans lunch and cakes mid-afternoon. All in all a good day out at the seaside, although neither Geoff nor Phil had sufficient time to wet their feet in the sea.
