2020 Season Public Running
It is with regret that due to the Coronavirus/COVID19 Worthing & District Society of Model Engineers has cancelled its 2020 season of Public Running at Field Place, Worthing until further notice. Our Members most being of an age group that is considered vulnerable, are saddened that we have had to make this decision and send their thoughts and best wishes to our loyal supporters in these difficult times. We will keep you updated as the circumstances change.
Updates for members are on the members page
In spite of the restrictions of lockdown and social distancing we have been able to keep the grass tidy at our track. Every two weeks a motley crew descendes onto our grounds to do what is required to keep it presentable. Using the tad more freedom that we can now enjoy essential maintenance can now be carried out within the clubhouse where long overdue repairs needing at least two pairs of hands are needed to carry out the work.
It's good to see that members of the public are enjoying our grounds so our work is not wasted but it would be even better if some visitors took their rubbish home with them or even took a leisurely stroll over to the waste bins dotted around Field Place, it's not Bournemouth or Brighton Beach you know.

We are in the North West corner of Field |Place, beyond the Tennis Courts. I suggest that you use the first Car Park entrance on the Right after enetering Field Place having gone past the indoor bowling club on your left. Go through to the second part of the car park and from there there's a fairly direct footpath by the bowling greens on your left up to the footbridge access to the club house as ground level access to the track and clubhouse is closed off on public running days. However, there is a buggy park by our entrance and disabled acccess is provided should it be needed.
