Welcome to the website of the Worthing and District Society of Model Engineers.

Our club constitution calls for us to have a Patron so following the death of Dennis Marshall we were faced with finding another person willing to take on the position.
Fortunately we have had for many years a good friend in Peter Webb M.B.E the joint owner, with his wife Miriam, of Electronic Temperature Instruments Ltd. (ETI) and he has generously agreed to be our new patron.
ETI based in Worthing, is a world leader in temperature measurement devices and has been awarded many accolades, too many to list here but most recently in 2018, The Queens award for Enterprise: Innovation.
Main Attraction 2020
The committee has proposed that a main attraction for next year will be a Tunnel of Love.
The water has been added at no extra expense and no unnecessarry work undertaken. However, until our erstwhile CME is able to add floats to the carriages and suitable water wings to the locomotives the project is on hold for the forseeable future.
Here we are and it's 2020 already, where did last year go to (come to that what happened to the last decade)?
For us, the season has already begun with maintenance work well underway in preparation for the 2020 season of Public Running.
This will start on Easter Sunday the 12th April beginning at the usual time of 2 pm
The latest edition of our newletter (Winter 2019). Is available for download from the link at the top of the Members Page.
Our erstwhile editor has added a couple of mistakes, he assures me that they are intentional and are there only to see who spots them.
We now have a Twitter Account so use the link to see the twitter feed
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.
