Well, It’s already a week since the 2023 North Somerset Model Show!
Now the dust has settled, it is time to reflect on what was our most successful show to date.
The Helicopter Museum Reports that the visitor numbers were up by 10-15% on last years’ admissions and the café takings were also up.
We had 28 clubs and 8 traders attending, and feedback has been received from many of them expressing their thanks for a great show that was both “enjoyable and friendly”. Many have already told us they are looking forward to next year.
We even had positive feedback from some of the visitors. One member of IPMS Lincoln, visiting the show while on holiday in the area, is thinking of trying to persuade his club to display here next year!
We may also have picked-up a couple of new members from the Somerset area as a direct result of the show.
So, thanks to all those attending the show, whether they be an exhibitor, a trader or a visitor, and making it a success.
And, of course, thanks to all the members of the club who helped enormously over the course of the weekend – setting up beforehand, getting everyone in first thing on the Sunday morning, and helping them out again at the end of the day.
Our last show in 2022 was very well attended as always and we would like to thank traders and clubs alike for making it a great day
