Passing of Denis Stevens

UPDATE: The funeral will be held at Aldershot Crematorium at 2.15 pm on Thursday 28th April. For those wishing to attend there will be a gathering afterwards at the Squires Café at Badshot Lea Garden Centre, which is just down the road towards Farnham from the Crematorium.


It is with great sadness that the Group announces the passing of our Chairman Denis Stevens.

In 1983 Denis was one of the ‘gang of five’ founding members of the Group and has been actively involved with Group activities since that time. Many people involved in the hobby throughout the South of England will know Denis from his attendance at exhibitions with his layouts ‘Sandy Lane’ and ’Figges Marsh’  and with the Groups ‘OO’ gauge layout Welles. Denis served for many years as the Group Exhibition Manager and will be well known and respected by many people involved in the model railway exhibition circuit.

We will publish more details and a contact point for condolences once these are known.
