New, larger venue for model club’s exhibition


Following the success of its inaugural exhibition, the Sleaford and District Model Railway Club has announced it is to move to a new, larger venue for next year’s event.

The 2017 showcase will be held in the Main Hall at St George’s Academy on Saturday, June 3, from 10am-4pm.

This year’s event was held at Osbournby Village Hall at the end of June.

Looking ahead to the 2017 follow-up, a spokesman for the club said: “As well as a showcase for our own model railway layouts and those of invited visitors, the extra space allows us to provide an opportunity to any local railway modellers who may like to exhibit their own layouts.”

Anyone interested in taking part in the show should contact exhibition manager Steve Wallace on in the first instance.

The new venue is wheelchair friendly and refreshments will be available.

Admission costs will be held at £4 for adults, £3 for children, and free for under fives.

A family ticket for two adults and two children will also be available.
