This year was our forth year as guests of the Forever Forties Group, displaying at Droitwich. It is always a good day and gives us the chance to meet the general public and promote the hobby.

In addition to our stand there was also the Droiwich and District Model Boat Club with some impressive radio controlled ships.

As in previous years there was a contingent of Roman re-enactors who this year decided that adding a Bren Gun to the Imperial Arsenal would be a good idea - as if the Romans needed any help conquering the, then known, world!

Future events.

Apart from the club meeting on 21st October we have no other comitments for October but in November there is, of course, Scale ModelWorld on the weekend of 10th & 11th at The Telford International Centre, Shropshire.
