Even more success at Abingdon 2019

IPMS Abingdon's show was well attended by The Earley Risers. Hugh and Martin, along with Liz and Steve set up the cloths. Big Mick, Geoff and Phil soon followed. Both Les B and V made up the final numbers.

Due to a non-arrival, the ERs were offered 3 more tables to the right of our stand - which we gladly accepted and promptly filled with more models!

Sean and Rolly visited the stand.
