Thank you – from the Wythall Hamfest team!

March 17, 2019 By: Chris G3YHF Category: Club

Thank you to the over 400 visitors to Wythall Radio Club’s 34th Hamfest 2019…..

….. And to the 39 traders large and small who filled the 4 halls and over 100 tables with a huge assortment of new and used items!

Visitors arrived from as far away as Devon and Southampton – even though we had hail, rain and sleet between the sunny intervals!

Thanks to Wythall House for letting us use their facilities, Burger Bob for his tasty refreshments – and our Club helpers, especially Warwick G4WMH for his skill in winching several cars off of the soggy grass!

 

IMPORTANT TRAFFIC INFO – Wythall Hamfest

March 13, 2019 By: Chris G3YHF Category: Club

Access to the Hamfest in Silver Street from Alcester Road is closed due to urgent water pipe repairs.

All vehicles must use Middle Lane entrance to Silver Street.  

NOTE:  Do not rely on Google maps or SatNav info on road closure – Silver Street is open from Middle Lane as far as the Hamfest (we have been there today!!).

TALK-IN:  Call on 145.550 or GB3WL if you require assistance. Note: there is no ‘bleep’ on GB3WL repeater – just talk normally and it will function.

Approaching from South

Leave at M42 junction 3, then take the A435 towards Birmingham.
At the first roundabout (Beckett’s Farm Complex and Sima Warehouse) take the 1st exit along Middle Lane, straight over the roundabout, and then turn right into Silver Street at the crossroads (opposite the horse outside Rose Bank Stores).  

Approaching from Birmingham or North

Take the A435 out of Birmingham towards Redditch. At the Maypole (Sainsbury’s) Island take the 3rd exit (A435 dual carriageway).  At the first roundabout (Beckett’s Farm Complex and Sima Warehouse) take the 4th exit along Middle Lane, straight over the roundabout, and then turn right into Silver Street at the crossroads (opposite the horse outside Rose Bank Stores).
