Join us

Are you interested in model engineering where you don't have to make the parts? Meccano is a medium which allows all sorts of models to be built without needing a workshop. You don't need to have any Meccano to join as you can just come along and see what other members are building and get advice on where to buy Meccano to start your collection. Our members build models they design themselves, models from published plans and from bespoke kits. Have a look around this website, particularly at previous meeting reports to see what members are doing.

Meccano now includes more robotics and some of our members are beginning to integrate computer control into some of their models.

Our club is mainly based in the Bristol area, but includes members from Devon, Somerset, Wiltshire and Wales, as we cover the South West of the UK. We have 4 main meetings a year but many of our members exhibit models at other exhibitions all over the country.

If you are interested in becoming a member or just want to come to one of our meetings to see what we're all about, please feel free to contact our secretary.

You can email him at secretary@southwestmeccano.org.uk

Membership is currently only £5 annually for adults, under 18's free.  Refreshments are free for members at all meetings.
