Thame & District

Boys Toys

The Boy's Toys Group organises visits generally of a more technical interest and is open to both girls & boys

This Group will only succeed if members volunteer to organise visits. Please discuss any possible visits with Brian Fisher (tel: 215924).

As further visits are organised announcements will be made at the main meetings and will then be added to this page.
