Frank Hornby Trust

Trust Chairman Les French always goes the extra mile to try to promote the Maghull based Trust and its works but his latest idea is BIG indeed.

Remember that TV series of a couple of years ago when that chap from Top Gear presented a number of programmes all about famous kids toys? Well one of those programmes was about Meccano and an eccentric bid to use it as the building material to create a bridge over the Leeds Liverpool Canal on Liverpool’s waterfront.

Now, who but Les would be doing all he can to get his hands on that very Meccano bridge for display in the Frank Hornby Heritage Centre within Maghull’s Meadows Leisure Centre? Yes, that’s exactly what he is doing!

Let’s hope he is successful because Les always puts Maghull first.

    I’ve got some meccano bits that might look interesting in the the Meadows’ Frank Hornby trust’s display. How can I contact Les French to discuss?
