The NMRA BR Winter Meet – “Benson”, will be at the traditional venue:
Benson Parish Hall, OX10 6LZ, on Sunday, 30 January 2022.
The venue will be open to NMRA members and the public from 10:00 to 16:00.
The NMRA Publicity Stand and the Region Library will be present. AP Assessment will also be available but must be advised beforehand to Keith Webb, AP Chair.
Traders confirmed include Anoraks Anonymous, Mech Models, N-Scale Laser, AngloAmerican, and American O Scale. There will also be space for members Bring and Buy, at £10 per table.
Layouts invited include Kamiak Falls, West Street Yard, both in HO. We are also expecting an N-Scale layout and more to be confirmed.
Catering will be provided by TooPerfection.
Admission will be £5 for NMRA members and £10 for non-members, which highlights the value to be gained from being an NMRA member. Please bring your NMRA Membership card, as we may not have time to check your membership and you’ll risk the non-NMRA admission charge.
There are attractions close by which might interest non-railers in your family sharing the day out. The Thames is close by, with walks on the footpath as well as the Waterfront Café. Waterperry Gardens are about 20 minutes drive. Oxford is also only a few miles away, with a Park & Ride available at Redbridge about a mile beyond where the A4074 meets the ring road. Bicester Outlet Village is close to M40 Junction 9, about 20 miles north. The Chilterns aren’t far away, with nature reserves at Aston Rowant close to M40 J6 and J5, and plenty of other locations to stroll around and to observe the numerous red kites.
We look forward to seeing you there,
Mick Moignard, Keith Webb – organisers.
