South Wales MAFVA Annual Show

0

South Wales MAFVA held its Annual Model Show on Sunday 1st October at our usual meeting venue of St. Johns Church Hall, Rachel Close, Danescourt, Cardiff.  This time Paul Hennessy had set up our own South Wales MAFVA Facebook page that had been advertising our show for some time.  However, despite that, the number of visitors was quite small.  What made the show busy for us is that we also invited local clubs St. Athan Modellers, and Cardiff Plastic Aero Club, and Barry Air Cadets, all of whom enjoyed themselves during the afternoon.  The view from everyone was that it was a good friendly show, just a bit short on visitors.  I also attended the London MAFVA show two weeks later, where exactly the same comment was made.  Somehow we all need to think of new or better ways of bringing the visitors and hopefully new members to our Association.  Here are some more photos of our show.
