Re: Second Meeting

The inaugrual meeting was held as proposed on the 8th April. Although only attended by three persons but with interest from more for whom the date did not suit, it was felt it was quite a good start. So much so that a joint project of some kind was proposed, it was agreed a small layout or diarama ...
