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
After several delays due, in the main , to the many and varied Covid restrictions imposed since its delivery our new ticket office has finally been erected.
Its not finished yet though. There's a hatch for the Station Mistress and the general colour scheme has to be agreed on which will hopefully make blend it in with the rest of the clubhouse.
When we can actually use it for its intended purpose is out of our control, perhaps things will change again next week or even tomorrow, if the government lives up to its normal U turn senario.
However, as things stand it looks more likely that Easter 21 could even be a tall order
He Never Rests
Yes, often imitated but never equalled our illustrious editor has once again, (in spite of the pandemic that has gripped this nation) produced another masterpiece.
If this could be entered into the Booker Prize it would sweep the board, As a work of art it would romp home clutching the Turner Prize.

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.
