A busy May

It has been a busy period since the last post but has seen some interesting events take place.

On 15th May we held an EGM at which a number of important constitutional changes were agreed which should greatly improve our finances and our route to a new clubhouse.

Then, on the 19th, Paul Hopkins took one of his 3mm layouts to a show where it was very well received and generated the possibility of an invite to both Warley and Wigan, and was asked for articles for the Railway Modeller - well done Paul !

On the same day, the local area group of the 7mmNGA held its SWING exhibition. The Group has, of course, a very close association with BRMRC (in fact all of the group are BRMRC members!) and other Club Members came along to help with stewarding and to represent the club. Figures are not available yet as we are still  awaiting final costs but it does appear that there will be a substantial increase over last year in the donations to the Group's chosen charity.

So, a busy, but successful month. Next event for those who can help will be Aldingbourne Central in support of the Bersted Parish Festival on 17th June.
