The Radio and Electronics Fair opened at 10am as scheduled with a long queue of radio amateurs waiting to enter, and over the duration of the event several hundred visitors attended making it a success.
The traders were arranged over two halls, with the photo above showing some of the traders and visitors in the main hall area, though we could have done with more space to accommodate all of the traders that in the end wanted to attend.
Plans are being made to host the REF again near Tunbridge Wells next year, with the date and venue to be confirmed asap so that the event can be placed in your diary and for bookings to commence early in the New Year.
Feedback comments were received from many of those that attended, with the comments below being a small selection;
“thank you for a wonderful day today. Well organised, clean, bright and airy. A good mix of stalls and great catering.”
“A very nice, clean, bright and airy venue with masses of parking. Plenty of traders selling new and second hand gear. Reasonably price food and refreshments”
“Just a short note to say how much we enjoyed the Radio & Electronics Fair today….very well organised.”
“A good day out. If you can get the same mix and number of traders next year that could make this a “must go to” rally in the area.”
The organisers of the West Kent ARS are grateful to all of the traders and visitors that attended this Fair, and we hope that we will see even more attend the event in 2015.
