Hi Fellow Enthusiasts/Modellers

It is with regret that I have received the news that out Treasurer will have to resign his office on medical advice. He will carry on untli the AGM and give his report but ill then step down.

I'm sure that members of the society will join me in wishing Peter well after the years of service he has given to the society.

This means we will need to take nominations for a new Treasurer at the next AGM

Could members willing to take on this post please make themselves known to the present officers as soon as possible as well as nominations for the other three posts which become vacant.

See Below

I hope the information you find on our web pages will be of use to you, as we are a Modelling Club set up by its members for all of its members and members of the public to view our models at lakeside and to join in and enjoy our hobby activities. The club is open to all sorts of Marine Craft (NO IC Engines allowed) we have a variation of models on display on the park lake waters and silt ponds,

On Sunday Mornings and Wednesday afternoons, a variety of models, marine, car and plane can be seen on the surface and below it.

There is a lot of friendly banter exchanged along with technical information at our informal meetings at lakeside.

The Open Day and Chair Competition that the club ran in 2021 allowing models to be entered irrespective of the amount of work each member had put into the completion of the model. This allowed every member the chance to enter a model or two.

The emphases today in the society is not being on the member’s capability in the modelling making department as was in the past, but on the owners enjoyment of their own marine craft. Those that have no modelling experience have been helped along the way by other members with the required knowledge to help them. It’s nice today to see some of those modelling novices now handing on their knowledge they have picked up with their time with the club to the newer and some longer standing club members. 

New on our WEB Pages
