Mill Rythe “Military Heroes Week-End” 19th/20th September 2015


      Area 4 was invited to put on a large model warship display again for the second year running at the Mill Rythe Holiday Village on Hayling Island, Hampshire as part of their Military Heroes Week End, which was attended by members of The Algerine Association, The Royal British Legion and The RNA.

      In addition to a static display of some 45 models we also put on demonstrations of the models on the outdoor swimming pool .We had ideal weather for the pool displays with sunshine and very little wind. They were well received by the visitors.

This year’s display was located at the rear of the main dining room and although the area was large, the visibility and awareness were more limited than in previous years which resulted in a lower footfall than usual and several of our members visited other parts of the complex to improve awareness of the display to the visitors.

      Members attending were Dave and Andrea Reith, Bob Jenner Joe Jackson, Geoff Young, Alan Gamblin, David McNair-Taylor, Ken Winter, Charles Davis and Alan Hall. 

      Overall we had an excellent weekend and out thanks go to the Management and Staff at Mill Rythe Holiday Village for their help and support.
