Our model engineering society was formed in 1947, so this year, 2017, represents the 70th anniversary of the club being established. As a celebration of this important year in the history of the club, on Sunday 20 August 2017 a special 'Steam Up' and BBQ was held at the club track . . . an occasion enjoyed by all who attended this combination of running model locomotives with the opportunity of good conversation and, as will be seen from the photographs  . . . .excellent BBQ'd food cooked by Mr & Mrs Brazier and Mrs Bloor, along with plenty of wine !  Our longest serving members, Howard Brazier and Geoff Fox, cut the 70th birthday cake.
