An exhibition to remember

Last weekend was that of our exhibition, just in case you didn't know. What we didn't know was whether the national doom and gloom would rub off on the event, or if people would support us as well as they have in the past. In the event it was memorable for all the right reasons, with attendance up, no significant organisational hitches, and a satisfied clientele on both sides of the barriers (which incidentally are ours now, thanks to the generosity of the Bolton club). One or two exhibitors and traders dropped out at fairly short notice, for a variety of reasons, and canny manager that he is, Tony always had a back-up plan to ensure there were no gaps. Even the rain held off until the end, when it made up for lost time with a biblical deluge just as we were packing everything away in assorted cars and vans. Good for us, morally strengthening, and all that. And as for VIPs, not content with the Mayor of Sefton we also had the High Sheriff of Merseyside amongst us, a full-blown colonel in full sword and medals.

Next year is our 40th, and something special will be needed to match this year's and mark the anniversary. Can't wait.
