A BIG thank you to all who supported us for our Wartime Weekend, exhibitors and visitors alike. The weather was a bit of problem on Sunday but the sun shone on Monday and by lunch time we had to use our overflow car parking.
Save the Date: 1st & 2nd May 2016 – we look forward to seeing you again. Without your support we can’t do what we do!
Below is a selection of exhibits on show we had in 2015.
