Society stand at Warley NEC, Help wanted Urgently.
Fellow Members
The Warley model railway show at the NEC on Nov 26 & 27 is probably the largest in the UK and this year the LNWR will be well represented by two superb layouts - 'London Road' and 'Clarendon'. The Society, at short notice, has been given display space so there is an opportunity to publicise the Society, sell some literature and recruit new members. Steve Johns will be manning our stand on both days but we need people to assist him.
Please put your name forward now - the good news is that four volunteers on both days get into the exhibition for FREE. Any assistance you can give will be greatly appreciated.
Steve Johns can be contacted at: steve9617@hotmail.co.uk or by phone on 07870789996 or contact me here today on 0191 4171003. Can also contact Webb Master via link below who will forward your reply.
