Surrey Group at Eastbourne Show

Apr

2011

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.

The Surrey Support Group took their Sales Stand to the Merstham Model Steam Show over the weekend of 21st/22nd May. The show was not particularly well attended and our sales were only modest. Even with the benefit of being accompanied by Paul Gower and his second-hand books, by late Sunday afternoon it became obvious that after deducting the stand fee from our takings we had made only a very small profit.

This weekend marks the Surrey Group Exhibition Stand's last outing for this year. I would like to give many thanks to all those who have assisted with manning the stand during the year. At this point it is worth reflecting on our achievements for the year.

I was surprised to discover that we have actually attended ten shows this year. In addition to raising awareness of the L&B project in the South London Area, we have also been able to provide significant financial support to the developments at Woody Bay in the following ways:
