Around 40 current members, partners and friends attended the event, which featured a celebration cake with the names of model railway layouts the club has built over four decades.

There was then a call-out for new members. The club meets on Tuesday evenings; “you can learn new skills/share common interests”, say members.

The club will hold its 39th exhibition on Saturday May 20.

Anyone over 18 who is interested in joining can visit beforehand. Membership is £10 per month: contact the club secretary on 01480 454857 or email crofters@ntlworld.com
