Events & Activities

The 49th Great Dorset Steam Fair August 2017 

There are a number of solid fixtures in the NHBS calendar for which we have the following dates for 2017.

The  AGM is our first fixture which takes place at the Leather Museum in Walsall; usually on the first Saturday in March. The hall opens at 10am and to find the venue just follow the brown signs marked Leather Centre from the outskirts of Walsall. Dont forget to take £5 change for the car park and PLEASE NOTE its £5 for ALL DAY. Members have been caught out recently by the darker colouring of the wording on the signs, being £4 for all day, but this is SUNDAYS ONLY. it is unclear on the signs, so beware of this, or they will ticket you.

The next meeting is then our spring fixture arranged by Stan Benton on Sunday 7th May 2017 held at the Silvester Horne Institute in Church Stretton, in Shropshire SY6 6BY.  This is always a favourite meeting for many members and well worth the trip to this wonderful part of the world, especially if you are staying over. Good food and drinks are available at the hall, and at the pub opposite.

The Ipsden Meeting is our last fixture of the year. Due to some confusion over dates recently this meeting will be held on the FIRST Saturday in October from now onward as this will be easier to remember than the date.
