Middleton September 2009


A "Mini" Exhibition was held at Middleton on the outskirts of Manchester to see if it was worth making it an annual event. The hall used is not very large and there was only room for 5 layouts. Pictures showing 4 of these can be seen below. The 5th layout there was our "Thomas" the children's "have a go" one, but unfortunately I have no pictures of it at this event. However there are other pictures of Thomas on this site whilst it is attending other exhibitions and it has its own page here.
Despite the smallish hall the event was a success and seemed to be enjoyed by the visiting public. It could now become an annual fixture in the future.
