A model railway show in Locking Castle at the weekend was a ‘success’, but it will be the last September running of the event.
The event opened by the mayor on Sunday, at The Campus, in Highlands Lane, raised £3,460 for Weston Hospicecare and The Castle Kids Club.
During the show, organiser Keith Price told attendees this would be the last summer show despite years of success.
The railway show, which had been run twice a year, has raised almost £50,000 for Weston Hospicecare.
Keith said: "The show was a massive success as always.
