In addition to our own Club meetings and our exhibition, we give as much support
as we can to other exhibitions around the country. This includes visits to other
Meccano Clubs, recent visits being to Runnymede Meccano Club, Midland Meccano Guild
and North Midlands Meccano Guild. We exhibit at the annual International Meccano
show at Skegness - Skegex.
We support the Bristol Model Engineering Society annual show at Thornbury in mid
August each year. This is a large event with model steam engines, aircraft, boats
and most other model making including Meccano. On 13th September 2014, we are supporting
a new model show in Portishead, North Somerset.
We are pleased to give presentations on Meccano to relevant clubs and societies when
requested to spread interest in Meccano and engineering topics generally, particularly
for our young adults as a possible career path . This includes supporting Cubs and
Scouts achievement of their ‘Model Badge’. For these events, we make up kits of Meccano
components with instructions and let the children have a go.
Our members are frequent contributors of articles for publication in various Meccano
Club magazines and have had Modelplans published.
