Swan Walk Demonstrations Confirmed

The Club will again be demonstrating its layouts and modelling skills in the Swan Walk Shopping Centre during the half term holiday from 18th to 26th February 2016. The shop will also have a stall selling second-hand model railway locomotives, coaches, wagons, books and magazines.

2017 Exhibition is on 6th May

The Club's main exhibition of 2017 will be held on Saturday 6th May, opening from 10am to 5pm - see poster on right. We will have more than 12 layouts on show and a number of trade stands. Our Exhibitions page has more details including a list of invited and confirmed layouts and traders.

Possible New Home Sought for Club

We are rapidly outgrowing our current home at St Leonard's Church Hall and are looking for a new venue. Founded in 2008 the club has grown from 18 members and a single layout to 50 members including a junior section and four layouts. Whilst we have been very happy at St Leonard's and they have been a very accommodating landlord there simply isn't enough space to store everything as the club goes from strength to strength.

In an ideal world we would have our own premises where we could leave layouts erected and work on them at any time, rather than just our weekly club meetings, but unless we find a generous benefactor this is prohibitively expensive in the Horsham area.

So we are happy to explore any options. We need a minimum of 100 sq ft permanent secure storage, an area equivalent to the size of one badminton court for club meetings, with the usual services and sufficient parking on site or nearby. Currently the meetings take place every Wednesday evening with two weeks of the month starting earlier in mid-afternoon.

If you are a landlord with some cheap space available, another club keen to share premises or maybe even a philanthropic lottery winner who wants to help a thriving community club please email us via secretary@horshammrc.org.uk.
