Offical Opening
Danetre Abbey 00 gauge
DMRC Club     Room
Chris Heaton-Harris MP For Northampton
On the 7th of September 2012 after many months of hard work by the club members, we were ready to open the doors of our new club room and show off our new premesis. Chris Heaton-Harris MP for Northampton was invited by the club to visit and he very kindly agreed to officially open our new club room. Members of Daventry District Housing (DDH) and Daventry District Council (DDC) were also invited to come along and join us on for the opening and see what we were all about. A huge club vote of thanks should go to Graham Snart’s wife, Yvonne, for laying on a lovely buffet lunch for all the guests. After Chris had been given a hands on demonstration of the clubs exhibition layout ‘Danetre Abbey’, he kindly officiated at the official opening of the new club premesis by unveiling a plaque, mounted on the wall in the main layout room, that commemorates the event. We would like to extend our thanks to Chris for sparing the time out of his busy schedule to come along. The new club rooms are a vast improvement on our humble ‘room at the top’, we now have more than 6 times the space enabling us to have the main layout room downstairs, a combined committee & N gauge room upstairs, a room which houses our small but growing library and a research computer, a workshop area and finally a seated discussion area. As members of the club we know that these extra facilities will enhance our enjoyment of club membership but we also hope that it will encourage new people of all ages to become members.
