Not bad it may be wise to use the bottom carr park.Just go past the main park gates and entrance to bottom car park is about 50 meters on the left.

In spite of a bad forecast for today we decided to run the event and finish early. It was a nice surprise to see clubs from Etherow, York, Leeds/Bradford, Potteries, HMES and Sheffield.  The lifeboat people had a stand selling goods to raise funds for the RNLI.  We also had some large yachts which I think came from Balne Moor.  Besides model boats we had quite a lot of model tanks which proved very interesting with the general public.  May be this is a sign of the times to incorporate these and model trucks in open day events.  Mountfleet models were on site promoting their latest model.  Sadly Tony Green Steam could not attend.  The day closed after the best warship presentation and raffle.  We closed early as the weather forecast was not good after 3 pm.  Thanks to everybody who attended.   Pictures to follow.  Thinking well into the future some dates for your diary.  8th July 2018 our annual Open Day and 9th September 2018 our Autumn Open Day.  More information to follow in the New Year.   :-)) :-)) :-)) :-)) :-)) :-)) :-)) :-)) Forgot to mention we have the following unclaimed raffle prizes

White 60  White161 White 165 Pink 392 Pink 389.Pink 20
