Annual General Meeting, 30th. Sept. 2017.
This was held as usual at the Methodist Hall in Leyland. Approximately 25 members attended and most enjoyed the hot-pot and apple pie provided. This was efficiently served by members who volunteered to assist. There was a good display of models, some of which are shown below. They were taken by Les. Nightingale Jr. and the webmaster.
An auction was held of purchased and donated Meccano. A very useful contribution was made to Guild funds. Roger Marsh made a generous bid for the left overs. Hopefully .many of the parts will appear in models in future events.
