At the York Model Railway Exhibition over the Easter weekend, the Mike Cook memorial cup was award to SHMRC’s ‘Hope-under-Dinmore. Mike Cook was for many years the driving force behind the York show and the cup is awarded to the layout which, in the opinion of those who knew Mike, he would have enjoyed watching most.
The club also exhibited Lee-on-the-Solent at the show. Both layouts were well received and attracted large crowds during the weekend. Nine club members attended.
