    Hello all,

    I am pleased to annouce that the 2nd Bishop Auckland Scout Group is hosting a model display event on Satuday 22nd January and Sunday 23rd January 2011 between 10am to 4pm on both days. This event has been organised as children in the different sections that make up the group (Beavers, Cubs and Scouts) have all been challenged to make a model to display at the event. These displays for each section will then be open to a public vote, and a prize will be given to the winner for each section. By doing this the children will achive many requirements for the badges that make up the badges that they work towards. Even the leaders and the older sections are getting involved with this and going to build models of their own for their own display - sadly we dont get badges for this!

    The event will feature two displays of collections, one of older and restored items from Mr D. Ward, and the other from the North East Meccano Society.

    Finally, and of interest to many here, there will be FIVE layouts in attendance - two of which making their exhibtion debuts to the circuit. These include:

    • Bishop Auckland - an 00 gauge, DCC Sound modern image and preservation layout
    • Leeds Weeklyn Hill - an 00 gauge DCC Sound BR transition shed layout
    • Skepwith - an 00 gauge LMS period layout
    • Shildon - an 00 gauge layout based upon the Station area of the nearby town
    • High Grange - an 0 gauge North East steam layout.
    Model trade stands come from Darlington Railway Modelling and the Durham Locomotive Preservation Group.

    There is a small admission of £2 for an adult and £1 for children with a family of 2+2 being £5. Tea, Coffees and some light refreshments will be available and any profit made from the event will go towards hall renovation work, and equipment for the children to enjoy across all sections on a range of activities.
    Disabled access into the building is also easy, with the whole event on the ground floor and a ramp allowing easy access into the building.

    I would like to thank the many groups who have supported this event to make it a success, being (in no particular order):

    Timothy Hackworth Model Railway Group
    Durham Locomotive Preservation Group
    The North East Meccano Society
    Darlington Railway Modelling
    Charles Walton
    Derek Ward
    David and Edward Farms

    Coming to this event means that your supporting a novel and creative way for the group to be a part of the wider community. Hope to see you there! [​IMG]

    Thought I would bump this to remind people about this years show, it is this weekend (21-22) same location and same times. I will be there with Leeds Weeklyn Hill again and looking forward to meeting some of you this weekend. Weeklyn Hill has undergone a couple of extensions and major fleet upgrade since the last show which will make it better.
