May 2024: Model Show Update

In a few days (2 weeks as I write this) we will host our annual scale model show – on Saturday 1st June. Final details have been sent out now to all traders and club/sig contacts on what to do on arrival and booking in etc. The info they have is more detailed than I am publishing on here.
I am still squeezing in a few more traders. 22 traders are booked in to attend, along with 36 displaying clubs/sigs. Latest traders to enrol are “Name it” the label makers and Jackhill Models. A full list of traders is available on the website.
Setup is from 7.30 for traders, and 8am for club/sig displays and we open to the public from 9.30am
Club members will be operating a refreshment stall in an outdoor but undercover picnic area, and we would kindly ask that everyone uses this area for consumption of food/drink – whether brought in or bought from us. We will also have the tombola and I am assured (but no idea what) of some interesting prizes available to win.
The competition will be run in a different room in the school this year, so please look out for directions – it’s not hard to find – honestly. Two qualified first aid persons will be on hand should their services be needed, but we are hoping on them having a quiet and pleasant day.
For those travelling to the show, there could be some travel disruption from the west, as the long anticipated Stonehenge tunnel/bypass is now in progress, and likely to be a travel issue for a good while yet (years!) Main work on the tunnel/bypass has not yet started, but preliminary ground works and rerouting of the national grid are underway. The main issue at present is the A360 closure – from its junction with the A303 down to Salisbury, as everything is rerouted on roadside signposts via the A338, through the centre of Amesbury back up to Salisbury.

The Salisbury ring road is now reasonably free of long term roadworks, and just suffers volume of traffic slowness in a few places at peak times. There are no known delays or planned issues in the outlying village of Laverstock where the show is held, that we are aware of for the foreseeable future either.

Many thanks
