          A quick bump, as it’s just over a week away from this event :-)

          Roger Sawyer’s Soldering demonstrations are always hands-on and extremely popular. Why not come and have a go?

          I’m hoping to be there. I’ll be easy to spot, as having flown in from a business trip I’ll be the shambling one with the red eyes!

          Do come and say hello.

            Hi only five more days to workshop wise, as the show organiser I’m not panicking! I hope to have many visitors come and see us in Portsmouth at the weekend for more information see the websites .

            Just a couple of notes for those coming to the show

            1. We have no catering facilities, so we will only provide hot and cold drinks. The venue is very close to a pub that serves food and as Portsdown Hill is a visitor attraction where you can view the Solent there are a number of roadside cafe’s (That is burger and Ice Cream vans) if you so desire. We suggest you bring your own food.

            2. This event is taking part in the South Hants model railway club club rooms, unfortunately these are in an old fort and are down a set of 22 steps, there is no lift or are other access. I hope this is not too much for people wanting to come.

            3. Parking might be a little bit of a problem if we have a large attendance. We will have access to some overflow parking in the grounds inside the fort on the grass please follow the signs if you need to park. We will put somebody outside with a high viz vest on to guide you.

            Come on join us we have 12 experienced demonstrators and two quality layouts for you to see.
