August & September Open Days cancelled

Given the ongoing need for caution over the coronavirus pandemic, we have taken the decision to cancel the remaining two open days of 2020, in August and September. This is to ensure we do not put either the public or our members at any unnecessary risk.

We are hoping things are back to some kind of 'normal' by April 2021, so please keep checking back with us for the latest news, and we hope to see you then.

Cancellations due to Coronavirus

In view of the ongoing coronavirus outbreak, and following government advice, it has been decided to cancel our 2020 exhibition, as well as our April and May open days at our club house. This is not a decision that we have taken lightly, but one we have taken to protect both our members and the public at large.

Whilst we are aware that this is only the latest in a long line of cancellations and postponements, this decision is all the sadder for us: 2020 is the 90th anniversary of our club, and we had arranged for exhibitors from the four oldest clubs in the country, The Model Railway Club, Manchester, Wimbledon and ourselves. Our exhibition will of course be back in 2021, and our committee will be monitoring the latest advice.

We anticipate that we may have to cancel further open days this year, however, we do aim to open our doors again as soon as it is safe to do so.

Please keep checking back with us for the latest news about the club.
