Eileens Emporium Newsletter June 2017

Postby derekrussan » Mon Jun 12, 2017 8:28 am

Welcome to our latest newsletter. Since our last newsletter, we have been very busy responding to customer requests, adding new products and improving the website.

We hope you are all keeping well and looking forward to the summer.

We will not be closing during the summer and anticipate normal service at all times.


We are pleased to announce that we have just accepted an invita tion to Wells Town Hall on 4th November, more details to follow. This will be a skill training day for all 4mm modellers as well as the AGM of the EM Gauge Society. The training and sales area will open be for all visitors, and not restricted to members. As always with Wells, there is an outdoor market in the square outside the Town Hall, so plenty for the other half to do.

We will also be at Crewe on the same weekend so pre-orders are strongly advised for both events. This will be our first visit so we will see how it goes.

Expo EM North has developed into a nice show, it hasbeen at different venues over the years. This year it is back to Partington, the same venue as 2015 (9/10 September to be confirmed).

The Wigan Show will be 1 week earlier than last year. This year it is on 30 September & 1 October 2017 to avoid a clash with Great Electric Train Show (Gaydon).

A list of exhibitions we will attend in the next few months are shown at the end of this newsletter, and the latest information is as always on our website: http://www.eileensemporium.com
