Sunday 07 October 2007 - 10am to 4pm
St. Edwards School, London Road, Romford RM7 9NX.

This was our third year here at St. Edwards School, and once again we were able to fill both halls with a wide variety of layouts, traders and demonstrations, including the latest in computer simulations, and old favourites like train rides!
