    I've just seen this on another forum, so I've copied it and pasted here for all to see...perhaps Fred has more information?


    It is with regret that I have to inform everyone that this years and most probably all future shows at St. Nicholas School, Merstham have been cancelled. I was informed of this by the gentleman that organised for the past three years.

    Just had a reply from Alan...



    Re: Merstham Model Steam Show - cancelled

    It would seem that the cost of running the show was close to exceeding the income over the past two years and they did not want to make a loss as it was for charity.

    That is very sad that it has gone. One of the only shows with a proper swimming pool.

    I believe from those who went that it has been getting increasingly quiet an sad over the last 2 or 3 years.

    As you say Richard - another one bites the dust.
