October: Uckfield Exhibition

Our second outing in October was at the invitation of the Uckfield Model Railway Club, generally considered a fine scale event. The layouts shown and the commercial stands present confirmed this reputation.

This year the Uckfield club introduced a new memorial trophy in memory of their former President Keith Nock. The voting was by fellow exhibitors and Lightermans Yard has become the first winner of the trophy. It was presented on Saturday evening at the after show. We had it on display all day Sunday and photographs were taken with the mayor for publication in the local press. We had to give it back on Sunday evening but we will be receiving an engraved plaque to keep.

To add to our weekend, once again Lightermans Yard was awarded second in the best layout vote by the public.
