Re: Northolt Night Photoshoot XXVII 19th March 2020

Looking forward to this. Couple of questions, if I may.. 1. I haven't received any emails yet about the arrangements for the night. Hopefully I haven't missed them? 2. I'm travelling down from MK, have got the afternoon off work so will probably be in the area early. Is there anywhere at Northolt I...

Nice work Phil. A type I haven’t seen before so I’ll be very pleased if it makes it! Any chance you could ask the visiting crews to bring some patches along with them?


They always do ! The problem is they always sell out quickly :sad:
