THE SOCIETY’S MIDLANDS REUNION, SPRING 2018
The Committee is pleased to announce that the Society is organising a Midlands event, in the style of our Winter Rendezvous, next April. This is in addition to Lenham 2018 and follows comments and suggestions received last year in our membership consultation. The details to date are as follows:
Date: Sunday, 29 April 2018
Venue: The Aston Court Hotel, Derby opposite Derby station. There is good parking available.
Format: Two meeting rooms will be used, one for an exhibition of layouts, trade and other stands.
We are delighted to say that Mers-Les-Bains and Marmagne will be among the layouts present. In the second room, a programme of talks and slideshows will be presented.
Our guest speaker will be author and broadcaster Andrew Martin, who will also have some of his books for sale. Catering: The hotel offers a range of food, from sandwiches to a full meal. Accommodation: The hotel has offered rooms at a discounted rate of £64 per night for double occupancy and £52 for single, both including breakfast. We can make a provisional booking which will need to be confirmed or cancelled 2 or 3 months in advance.
