The society meets every Thursday evening at the United Reformed Church Hall, Chapel Lane, Wimborne, BH21 1PP from 19:30 to 22:00, with a 19:45 start, and a refreshment break at about 20:45.
We also meet on Tuesday nights, (same times and venue) to work on the layouts and other modelling projects.
Some special events and visits are held on other days.
If you would like to join, please feel free to just turn up on a Tuesday or Thursday night. See the About us page for membership details.
N.B. There is nowhere to park in Chapel Lane. Most members park in East Borough or West Borough. For a map, click here.
