Bursledon Brickworks Museum2022

A thank you note from the Museum;

Many thanks to you and South Coast Modellers for coming to the Mid Summer Fair yesterday and supporting the                    Brickworks Museum again.  It was quite an impressive display you had and several people remarked on the War ships.                 Sorry I did not see you before you left but was in the office in the bungalow. It was a good event for us with over 500                     people coming and good feedback about the history and atmosphere. It is our 125 year’s Anniversary this year so hope it             will keep going for another!!!

            Best Wishes,



            (Pam Formby (Events the Brickworks Museum – Charity No 1170043)."

 Sat 26th June .
           Seven members of the Group attended the Brickworks Mid Summer Fair and put on a mixed display of models including warships, vehicles and aircraft . We set up in our allocated display area in the centre of the museum which provided a constant footfall of visitors throughout the day . The centrepieces of our display were Dave Reith’s excellent model of USS Roosevelt and Geoff Young’s large model of HMS Invincible We received lots of compliments from visitors on the standard of our models and had many discussions with visitors on the building and details of our builds . A very enjoyable day and we look forward to our next visit to this venue.
