I have just returned from the 1st Bangor MRC and feel I must respond to the above comment which I feel is very unfair.
I spent the morning at the exhibition spread over 4 halls and a great number of layouts. The atmosphere was very cordial and relaxed, allowing time for a bite to eat put on by the MRC. For a modeller this gives the chance to chat to the stand holders about the hobby and experiences. It should be noted that MP for the area Lady Herman was also visiting the exhibition as a show of support which I thought was a very nice touch. The fact no trade stands there did not spoil this experience in any way and in fact probably saved me a fortune. I would like to congratulate Bangor MRC and would recommend anyone to visit this highly enjoyable exhibition.
Attached are some photos of the exhibition.
