On Saturday 15th. October the Anglia Group held one of its regular get-togethers at The Limes Hotel Needham Market.

Trevor is a local Taths member who enthralled the audience with his potted and varied working history, starting out in the main with Marconi's, spreading his wings as a model maker and finally ending his working life as a bespoke furniture maker.

Trevor  is now using all his skills to make superb and intricate 1/4th scale working model tools which are amazing. The attention to detail and accuracy of his work is a joy to behold, as the photos show.

Our sincere thanks were expressed to Trevor after which we had a good buffet trying to eat whilst talking and viewing Trevor's display.
