West Lancs and Cumbria IA. meeting 21-9-2013.

I  attended the West Lancs and Cumbria IA meeting on Saturday  21 st, September 2013 at  Lancashire County Council Offices, (County Hall)

  Pitt Street, Preston.

On arrival I was offered light refreshments of Tea and biscuits, I was then introduced to  Chairman Brenda Flanagan and Secretary Keith Woan who made me most welcome.

A raffle was drawn with five prizes donated by members, but you guessed it, I got nothing!

This was followed by,

A fine lecture with on screen graphics by West Lancs & Cumbria IA president Mr Nigel Scott BSc MD FRCS ,

Entitled   'Roadblocks & Assumptions'

He gave this same lecture at last year's National Council meeting at Blackpool.

This was followed by questions and answers to Mr Nigel Scott.

Chairman Brenda Flanagan then thanked Mr Scott for his lecture and also for being president of the West Lancs & Cumbria IA.

Representatives of the manufacturers and distribution companies were in attendance.

An old friend of  IA-Manchester  who was there,  Stuart Hutchinson (Ex Dansac Rep) who was showing his collection of steam locomotives and collection of steam engine books with great interest shown from  the members.
