Due to substantial increases in costs associated with holding our exhibition at Leamington College we have decided that we can no longer continue to use the venue for our annual exhibition.
We are therefore faced with finding a new venue for our event. This will take some time.
Additionally even if social distancing rules are relaxed by March 2021 we feel there is no guarantee that visitor numbers will have recovered to pre Covid-19 levels.
Regretfully, therefore, we have had to make the decision not to host an exhibition in 2021.
We will use the time to fully evaluate how we can best move forward and, hopefully, we will be able to host an exhibition in 2022 at a new venue.
The clubhouse contains a library of railway related materials: books, magazines and periodicals, photographs and videos. The clubhouse contains a small workshop which is available to all members.
The Society has over 80 members mainly from South Warwickshire and the surrounding areas. Most of the members belong to one of layout groups but many just like to meet other members and chat in the library area with its extensive range of railway books and magazines. Several of the members also have their own layouts which have exhibited at our own or other shows.
We have seven club layouts in various stages of construction in all the major gauges: N (Kineton, Toysleigh and Midway), OO (Duxbury and "Project 2"), P4 (Clarendon) and O (Kimble) and these regularly appear on the exhibition circuit and in the modelling press. All the layouts would welcome new joiners.
