We have been a branch since the early 1980s, and for a considerable time now have been meeting every second Sunday of the month at Normandy Village Hall, Manor Fruit Farm, Glaziers Lane, Normandy, GU3 2DD, an attractive hall with a very interesting history – check out http://normandyvillagehall.org/about-nvh/
We were delighted with the attendance at our quarterly ALL DAY FAIR and AUCTION on Sunday, Oct. 14th. But we are sure there are other collectors in the area who did not come along, who missed our no VAT no Buyers Premium auction, and our local and national dealers.
