Events 2015 / 2016

Ilfracombe club members enjoyed showing their boats cars & tanks at the Northam May Fair on Saturday 30th April 2016.
Although the site leaves a lot to be desired we had a steady flow of visitors, Barrie's duck was its usual attraction for the children  although its owner disappeared at 2-30 with the other members when the belly dancers were performing.
Lady members enjoyed the various stalls and returned home with lots of plants.a good day was enjoyed by all. Thanks from Harry & Shirley.

Bude-Stratton Heritage Festival 26th July 2015 – Our awful weather rather put paid to our participation in this event, however some of our more enthusiastic members (3) did turn up only to be faced by high winds and rain, the organisers, decided that to try to put up Gazebo’s was not a good idea and gave us some space in the Parkhouse Centre, from what I can gather, the exhibits were appreciated by the members of the public who braved the rain and wind.

Bicclescombe Park Open Day 13th August 2015 – For once the day was good weather-wise and remained that way throughout, we had a really good day with tons of interest from the Mums/Dads and children, many of the latter did participate in our have a go boats, the smaller of the children continue to be fascinated by Barrie’s Duck and chicks, what would we do without “Arfer” apart from ditching our ear plugs.

IADMBC Exhibition at St. James & St. Phillips Church Hall 15th August 2015 – This was the first time we have had our very own exhibition, the venue was superb and gave us all the room we could wish for, thanks to the ladies for giving us tea and cakes throughout the day.

I must admit that in hindsight we could have planned this better, more thought must be given to the day chosen and certainly the advertising needs to be much larger and checked when it comes to Newspaper details, one of the papers gave the wrong date and people turned up for our show a day early, not good.

However most members brought their Boats, Tanks, Trucks and Cars to exhibit, such a real shame that the public did not show more interest. Photos courtesy of Shirley and Harry Thorne and Mike Screech.
