Open Day Date Confirmed

The Club will again be holding an Open Day from 10am to 4pm on Saturday 7th April 2018. We will be demonstrating our layouts and modelling skills and providing an opportunity to see what our Club is all about. Children and the young at heart can run trains on our Sunny Green layout and race HO scale slot cars. There shop will be a stall selling second-hand model railway locomotives, coaches, wagons, books and magazines and refreshments will be available

Plans for Our Tenth Anniversary

The Club will celebrate its tenth anniversary in October 2018. This will be marked by an exhibition in that month rather than in April or May as in previious years. As yet plans are not finalised and it is possible that the exhibition will be moved to a larger hall in the Horsham area. In the coming months, our Exhibitions page will have more details including confirmation of the date, venue and 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.
