We are in the running for the “Aviva community Fund”.
We have begun work on a new project to create a layout of Mill Hill Station from the 1950s/1960s.
You can find out about the project, right here on our website. If you have any information about the area from around that time, and if you have any photos too, we would love for you to get in touch.
The ELMRO model railway exhibition at Mill Hill Community Centre took place on the 17th and 18th of January 2015.
The following organisations exhibited a number of layouts :
Lytham St Annes Railway Society
Romiley Methodist Railway Modellers
Leigh Model Railway Society
There were also 3 trade stalls at the event :
The Mayor, Cllr Alan Cottam, and Mayoress Mrs Agnes Cottam, alongside council leader Cllr Kake Hollern attended the event.
Despite the terrible January weather, the event was a great success, raising approximately £300 The East Lancashire Hospice. A big thanks to everyone who exhibited, and everyone who attended. Also, a great deal of thanks goes to the volunteers from the East Lancashire Hospice who were in attendance all weekend.
