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†raised†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” steam locomotive, appropriately named “Chicheley Hall”. †

There was such an engine in service (Number 6906) but sadly it was scrapped with the introduction of diesels. †There are some photos available on the web, but are copyrighted so cannot be shown here.
