Shows, Events and other Meccano support
In addition to our own Club meetings and our exhibition, we give as much support as we can to other exhibitions around the country. This includes visits to other Meccano Clubs, recent visits being to Runnymede Meccano Club, Midland Meccano Guild and North Midlands Meccano Guild. We exhibit at the annual International Meccano show at Skegness - Skegex.
We support the Bristol Model Engineering Society annual show at Thornbury in mid August each year. This is a large event with model steam engines, aircraft, boats and most other model making including Meccano. On 13th September 2014, we are supporting a new model show in Portishead, North Somerset.
We are pleased to give presentations on Meccano to relevant clubs and societies when requested to spread interest in Meccano and engineering topics generally, particularly for our young adults as a possible career path. This includes supporting Cubs and Scouts achievement of their ‘Model Badge’. For these events, we make up kits of Meccano components with instructions and let the children have a go.
Our members are frequent contributors of articles for publication in various Meccano Club magazines and have had Modelplans published.
