Diary Dates for 2024

The WDMES hosted a successful Open Day, on 20 April, for visitor from other Model Engineering Societies and like organisations. This is the first at Hall Place and we hope to have two a year from now on. 31 Visitors signed in with eight locos and ran between 10:00 and 16:00 with a Fish-n-chip luncheon and plenty of tea, coffee, biscuits and cake throughout the day.

We shall be running for rides on Bank Holiday Monday, 06 May from 12:30 until 16:00 and we will continue to open every Sunday from 12:30 to 16:00 until Sunday, 06 October inclusive.

We may run at the Hall Place Christmas Fair in November, other Bank Holidays and during some of the School Holidays. Please watch this space for details later in the year.

The cost of a ride remains at £1.25 for children and the young at heart. Tickets bought in previous years will, as usual, be valid - and those bought this year and not used can be used in later years.

We will be holding another open day for members of other Societies on Saturday, 12 October, from 10:00 until 16:00, but will not be open for public to ride on those dates.

The WDMES AGM will be held in the Club Room on 23 May from 19:30.
