      Hi All

      > - and we are a pretty miserable bunch for not having posted earlier to
      reassure him what a good job he had done and how much we DID enjoy

      In my official capacity as Sales Officer (Modelling Goods) for the 7mm
      Narrow Gauge Association, it was a marvellous day with plenty of public with
      money in their pockets. Having access to the hall the night before so that
      you could enjoy a leisurely breakfast before the onslaught was a very kind
      consideration and as to the meal at the Crossways Hotel afterwards - Howard
      deserves a hearty slap on the back and thunderous applause for again
      exceeding his unusually high standard of organisation.

      As a narrow gauge modeller, I was awe-struck. There where some truly
      fantastic layouts to enjoy and even better stalls to browse and be
      separately from your hard-earned pictures of Her Majesty. Inspiration was
      drawn from a number of sources and I am really looking forward to Small &
      Delightful 2002

        I heartily endorse the above comments about this show. It was certainly
        worth a long trek from deepest south west Cornwall just to see
        Charmouth/Bridport Town, I well remember seeing Charmouth at a show in
        the North of England many years ago and it was good to see it again
        looking better than ever. Lets hope David can be pursuaded to show it
        again in this form, it is certainly one of the exemplar 7mm ng layouts
        of the moment. It was also good to meet so many specialist traders and
        put faces to names.

        All round an excellent event and congratulations to those whose hard
        work made it happen.

        p.s at the risk of sounding like a plug....anyone within striking
        distance of the South West can see Bridport Town again at the Redruth
        show in March 15 - 16 and view the newly unleashed Helford Valley
        Railway at the same time!

          I have been reading the rave reviews of the show with very mixed
          feelings. Last year was the first time I attended and had a wonderful
          time thanks to all the Small and Delightful folk who treated me like
          visiting royalty. I determined then to return this year as soon as I
          heard that Charmouth and Bridport were going to be present. I was just
          another one of those many who were seduced by the Charmouth articles
          in RM to try 7mm NG many, many years ago.

          Fate decided otherwise and for the sake of family unity a Caribbean
          Cruise leaving this coming weekend took priority. I know there is no
          comparison between the benefits of the choices, but sometimes we have
          to make sacrifices to keep SWMBO happy.
