The Bristol Model Railway Exhibition takes part at the Thornbury Leisure Centre from 28th to 30th April 2023.

Last year, there were 35 models, 46 trade stands and 10 societies and group. This year, Railfuture (Severnside) branch will have a stand there (8' x 6') and I have offered to help / share - I admit I love doing these things - with a view to helping promote the Coffee Shop.

I am looking, hopefully, for volunteers who would like to join me for a day (or even two).  I am liaising with Wendy, from Railfuture, to work out the stand and there will certainly be space for other groups and campaigns to have leaflets there - Railfuture is very much about associating and encouraging rail use and campaigns.    Should be a win for everyone and it should be fun too.  And, yes, I am aware it's a bus ride or lift to get there!

Please let me know if you would like to help.

I can help on the 28th...

Things take longer to happen than you think they will, and then they happen faster than you thought they could.
