Exhibition of Hobbies and Collections

The Kettel family kindly organised a second exhibition of hobbies and collections, supported by excellent cakes and tea.

The event was well attended and rose over £150. †Several passers-by stopped their journey on the A422 to take a look.

Fascinating displays included every conceivable model of the Mini, photographs of planets and distant galaxies taken from an observatory in Chicheley, historical farm implements, and a model railway complete with a Great Western Region “Hall Class” locomotive, appropriately named “Chicheley Hall”. †There was such an engine in service but sadly it was scrapped with the introduction of diesels. †
