Not the Christmas meal

We thought we would repeat last year’s successful combination of training on the WHR and taking advantage of Spooner’s christmas meal offer. Only someone forgot to book the latter event in time....

Still we persevered with a day adjusting the line and length of various curves through
Beddgelert forest, refilling via a special-offer menu at Spooner’s and for some, a trip on the Ffestiniog Santa Special. Father Christmas duly made an appearance, with a distinctly Welsh accent and a taste for the older variety of pun, and insisted on being photographed next to the Chairman. And just who got whose autograph is still not clear.

Others, perhaps wisely, chose to make an early departure to visit the Wigan model railway exhibition, one of the few in the north-west which we will compare against our own.
