First of all a big thank you to everyone that supported our 2016 Garden Party. We were so lucky with the weather – perfect for picnics and chilling out including sunbathing by the pond. Excellent refreshments kept us all going for what was a long day.
This year we had two traction engines giving free rides round the cops. Children's sports were very popular indeed. A well dressed Stationmaster kept the trains moving all day. More games this year kept children happily occupied together with the colourful table railway. Children were able to propel themselves along the top siding – hot work yesterday. There were many interesting painted faces and balloon models being produced. Members’ and club locomotives, on show, proved of great interest as was the model fairground organ. The art competition had many excellent entries including pavement art. The SM32 track also proved of great interest and the pool area generally was much admired.
Ambient music playing added to the pleasure of the perfect English Garden Party.
Many Thanks to Mike the organiser for this report
