Demonstrations, trade stalls and three layouts were on display so that people could find out more about the club and what they do.

"It was great to see younger people come and spend their time on the digital layout which is always good to see," Keith Sharp, chair, said.

"People were very interested in the demonstrations that we put on and there were a lot of questions asked and inquiries about joining the club."
