MECCANO enthusiasts turned out in force for Moulton Mill’s annual model show.

The show is staged by the North Lincs Meccano Guild and attracted more than 100 people over the two days.

Alan Lambert, chairman of the Friends of Moulton Mill, said: “There were some quite exciting models on show, some of which had moving parts, and there were working railway tracks.

“We had a number of tables where youngsters could sit and have a go at building things, which was a great way to introduce them to Meccano.”

Mr Lambert said the weekend raised some money for the mill as well as helping to put it on the map.

He added: “People who came to the show perhaps wouldn’t have visited the mill otherwise and now they may come back again.

“We raised some funds through the tearoom and a raffle.”
