Our 2012 event proved to be yet another successful exhibition. There were nearly 1800 visitors during the three weeks we were open. Thank you to those who wrote the many positive comments; this makes our efforts seem well worth while.

We were very pleased with the praise for those who did the research and put together the boards and folders. A great deal of new material was found which has been added to our ever growing archive.
