Dear Barry,
Thank you for inviting us to show our Bambury Shed layout at the SVMRC exhibition at Loughborough last weekend. We really enjoyed the experience and were very pleased to have gained the Mayfield Crafts Trophy for the layout voted for by your members.  Please let me have the return address for your next show at the end of our tenure.

We hope that the show was a success for you especially as you had to do some serious reorganisation at short notice because of the construction work at the original venue. All in all the whole weekend was a delight for us and we appreciate all your efforts in accommodating our club.
Once again, please convey our thanks to all at your club for your hospitality and we hope that the show was a success for you.
