Would any members intending to exhibit at the Mells Daffodil Festival on Monday please note that we will be in the usual field but it has been renamed the “red zone”, so please ensure that you have your passes ready on arrival at the village. You will then be directed to the red zone.

Despite a bitterly cold wind we had a good turnout for the crank-up at the White Horse Country Park in Westbury yesterday. The miniature train was kept busy giving rides, and lots of people came to see what was an extremely varied selection of engines. Apologies to anyone who missed us, but I’m afraid that in the end the cold got to us and by three thirty it was all over.

The Wedmore crank-up is due to take place on the 2nd of June, when I hope the weather will be a little warmer. A certain magazine has been showing a different date, but please be assured that nothing has changed


What a fine day for the Cranmore sale. Lots of sellers, lots of buyers, and a fine sunny morning. Who could ask for more? If you missed it don’t miss the next one, at Tucker’s Grave on the 12th May.
