    ๐Ÿ“ Bury Marine Gala Day
    4 years ago by slinger ( Leading Seaman)
    Flag
    Thanks to all those people who attended our open day and especially those from other clubs, it is always nice to meet old and make new friends.

    Special thanks to Scale Hobbies for their attendance and support.

    It was a pity that weather wasn't like Saturday, but still it did not rain, which is unusual for when we hold an event?
