Vandalism at Market Deeping MRC Exhibition

In the early hours of Saturday 18th May 2019, Welland Academy in Stamford was broken into. The school hall was set to be the venue for Market Deeping Model Railway Clubs annual exhibition with many layouts, demonstrations and traders having already set up in anticipation of the show opening.
All the stands in this hall were completely destroyed by the perpertrators which included 4 layouts which had been constructed over many years. The suspects were aprehended at the scene but this is of little comfort to those directly affected by their disgusting behaviour and actions.
In the wake of this cruel and barbaric act, a fundraising page has been set up by the Market Deeping MRC which has already surpassed it's initial target of £500. Click HERE to go directly to the fundraising page or use the form below to support those affected.
