2009 ENTRY 667 (about 90 up!!) -- Thanks to everyone who has sent us an entry
This is It !! The new show hall, which we hope will prove popular to members and visiting exhibitors alike. Formerly the Grindon Boys Club, the premises have been serving the needs of the community for many years and has become a popular venue for many sporting activities. Now we can show the populace an alternative hobby and look forward to our first show here.
The compilation below gives some idea of the facilities, but the internal pictures do not do it full justice, because the hall was not in use at the time and therefore the sports lights had not yet built up to their Full, impressive, power. However, this image does give some idea of the proportions on offer -- the hall is very large and will accommodate all that we require of it, and more! Note also the viewing balcony, situated in the 'cafeteria area', which should prove popular.
There is parking on the road outside the show hall, and also a small free Car Park on the opposite side of the road, at the top of which is also a popular public house - the Grindon Mill Inn which has its own car park for its customers!
Schedules will be sent to all who have exhibited over the last three years. Please contact Dave Herring (firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to be sure that you are on the mailing list
HOW TO GET THERE BY CAR........
The venue is on Grindon Lane and is easily accessible for those travelling by car, (Postcode for "SAT NAV" users is SR4 8HW) from the North, South and West of the city - which is well served by good trunk roads/motorways A1(m) & A19) to within only a few miles. They give on to two major roads into the city from its western side, the A183 and the A690, which are actually linked by Grindon Lane - so the hall is easy (and quick) to find!
The committee and members of South Shields BS and Sunderland BS acknowledge, with gratitude the generosity of our sponsors - Bucktons and D R Foster, without whose support this show would have been much more difficult to stage to its present standard. Our additional thanks to the recent members of the, sadly closed, BLYTH VALLEY BS who made a generous donation from their closing club funds.
We are also grateful to all societies, members, family and friends without whose cheerful and valuable support and encouragement the task of staging this event would have been very hard work !!
