We will use the Sunlight Centre in Richmond Road, Gillingham - about 10 minutes walk from the pier according to Google. Parking is very limited at the Centre so please park in our yard on the pier.
We hope to stick to the original schedule for the day:
Buffet lunch from 12.30
1pm Showing of Australian TV Film; “Medway Queen, Angel of Dunkirk”
2.15pm (approx.) start of meeting
Members only of course.
The exhibition round is coming back to life and following the group's stall at The International N Gauge Show (TINGS) in Warwickshire last month (pictured) further model exhibitions are on the calendar; with Aldershot on 9/10 October and Tolworth Show Train on 13/14 November. Our stand at TINGS is the largest we mount in the year and as well as 16ft of sales space seen here, there is a 6ft display of the ship's history and restoration.
The wooden top rails are being upgraded as well to make the deck perimeter safe and secure as well as improving the ship's appearance.
