To our regular visitors. The intention is still to start the 2022 season on Easter Sunday the 17th April. Obviously the health of the nation at the time will have the final say but we will keep you informed through here or via our facebook page.
In the mean time all the best for 2022 and stay safe. There will be an update within the first week of February.
For members we will restart Thursday evenings on the 10th February. Please go to the members page for more information.
The Club house entry path and steaming bays
After much moaning and groaning over the recent years by those who move club locomotives to the steaming bays, work has finally started to improve the quality of the path.
A skip arrived last week and the old tarmac and slabs were removed. This week, the last Wednesday in January, the groundwork was completed in preparation for laying concrete next week.
For those of us who have suffered the A259 improvements for what seems like most of this century it's a lesson in what can be achieved if you put your mind to it and get on with the job and not claim the weather, covid or parties that are work related are the reasons for delay
Winter 21 Edition of our Newsletter
It's still there and hasn't been cancelled - - yet. It might be because it's too vital for the public good to be removed or possably, and more likely, if the Beano can still exist then so can our news letter. Regardless, it's still there at the top of the members page ready to be downloaded for your information, edification and amusement.
Our Facebook page can be found at by searching for Modelengineersworthing on the site or using the link below.

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.
