One of the major benefits of the membership of any club or society is the opportunity
to meet like minded people and develop our shared interest by discussing plans and
models, and exhibiting the results. In our club, we welcome new members of any skill
level or Meccano holding: all we look for is the willingness to join in and enjoy
yourselves. Remember that there are only 3 limitations to what can be achieved with
Meccano. These are Time, Meccano component availability and Imagination....oh to
have all three in abundance.
A year has now passed since we lost our president. We are in the process of purchasing
a cup to commemorate his contributions to our club and the the more general modelling
fraternity and we will update members as to the rules for winning this prize.
The South West Meccano Club is a club for Meccano enthusiasts in the South West of
England and South Wales. We meet four times each year in the Bristol area with a
branch in Paignton. Our Meccano interests include history, model building,
collecting and renovation. We support our hobby with shows and displays both in the
local area and throughout the UK.
Whilst we are principally a Meccano club, many of our members have interests and
expertise in other modelling and building systems.
