We have a tradition of awarding the "John Hayward Shield", in memory of one our group's key members who passed away early in 2010. This award is for "Best Layout of Show" as adjudged by you, the visitors. There is a similar award in memory of another departed member, Ernie House. This is voted for exclusively by other exhibitors and traders.

Follow the links to Layouts and Traders under Exhibition in the menu above to see the lists of layouts and traders we are expecting. You will also see other societies and organisations listed on the traders page together with a number of demonstrations.

We offer support to a number of charities. This year for example we plan to support:-

The winners of both awards at SWING 2011 - Corris

Both the John Hayward and Ernie House awards were taken in 2010, in a close fought race, by the beautiful 009 Corris Railway model.
