**********10th Anniversary************

2012 Meeting. This year marked the 10th Anniversary of this meeting and once again, members travelled from near and far to mark a very special day. Once again, the day was blessed with superb, early May weather, and early-birds began swapping and dealing from car-boots until the hall opened up at nine. Now that we have our new, updated and improved website up and running, this means that I can now include larger images which give a much better impression of the day so, enjoy!

The Church Stretton Meet

Once again centre stage was taken by Mark Roberts' (centre) fabulous collection who was ably assisted by Terry Williams (in the hat) and admired by many. Apart from a number of fine displays, there were plenty on sale, including a fine selection from Geff Geden, seen here (below) having a final check to see that all is present and correct!
