 Thomas turned 20!

thomasOur Thomas the Tank Engine was built locally 20 years ago and we held a party on 20th January to celebrate.

We were delighted with the enormous number of children and adults who came to enjoy train rides (from Lions Club of Ellenbrook), lots of cake, competitions and prizes, and a fabulous party atmosphere! A big thank you to everyone who helped celebrate the event.
