It was very enjoyable to be able to come along again, and glad to offer some good quality flats at a very reasonable rate. Most of my collection is now gone, but I have held on to a few gems that I couldn't part with, amongst them  my first ever set, William Tell from Scholtz. Some Gottstein favourites namely Charge of the Light Brigade and Charlemagne, and a good sized variety of Kieler figures by Franck from all sorts of epochs. I am sure I will find a load more squirrelled away so there might be more coming along.
Good to see you, Brian, and all the others. Well done to the committee for keeping things going in challenging times.

Hi Brian,
Thanks for the AGM update.

Will any of those subjects be summarized for those of us not able to attend? I'm thinking the Journal or the Meeting Minutes. Especially interested in Nick and Gerry's remarks. (No offense intended, Ed!  ;D ).
Give some thought to Zoom meeting next year for AGM so the rest of us can be there.

Was good to see you again Charles, the day started with about 5 members there ,Nick looked worried hahaha,  but through the day this increased to around 15 plus a few non-members  so all good.


Was good to see some of the old members still keeping the brushes wet and I think I got round to chat to all that was there!


The AGM went well, Nick gave us a outline of how the society will go forward in the coming year, Ed gave a breakdown of memberships, down a little but a lot has happened in the last few years and pass times have had to take the back seat,  Gerry Larkin outlined how we should promote the flat figure and the demise of the model shows in the UK!!  expect  a lot from Gerry this year.
Jerry needs more input from members for the Journal, anything to do with the flat figure, shows or trips is welcome, always better to have too much than not enough!!
2D figurines was there selling flats, no John Russell ( first time ever) so no Rex figures but Charles King turned up with a car full of some of his old figures  to sell, dirt cheap and some real goodies among them as you would expect from Charles !!!


Well that's about it!  I will leave the details to the committee which by the way stays the same (well done guys)

Hi Brian, with the Brexit, the need for a visa, it is harder to come in England, so no longer on my agenda, but please find photographers to take enough pictures to document a nice reportage in the shows gallery ! (I can help to clean-up the pictures)
