Welcome to the website of the Worthing and District Society of Model Engineers. Whether you are an existing member of the Society, someone interested in model engineering or a member of the public looking for information on our next running day for the trains, we hope that you will find this site interesting.
If you are interested in joining us please call into Field Place on one of our Thursday meeting evenings or on a Wednesday or on some Saturday mornings. Alternatively you may use our Contact Us page to send an email or download and complete an application form. There is more information on the About us page.
Annually during June we have our fish and chip evening that is for members and family to gather, gossip and get a few locomotives in steam.
This year marked the dedication of a new bench that has been donated in memory of a late departed member Valerie Guy by her husband Peter. Valerie was an active member of the club for many years, look inside at the 00 gauge layout, that was Valerie's work. In her latter years, no longer being able to drive herself, she liked to sit outside watching the trains go by so it is a fitting memory to a lovely lady.
The bard of Field Place offers the latest Summer 2019 edition of our newletter. It's available for download from the link on the Members Page.
Sunday 28th July is the next time for trains
In spite of the Cricket (didn't we do well), F1 (didn't Hamilton do well) and Tennis (enough said) and not to mention Wiston steam rally we put on a good show on the 14th and so did you all too, many thanks for your support when there was so much else on offer both inside as well as out. As it says at the top, the next time we are out and running is Sunday the 28th July
The full schedule for this year is shown on the public running page where you can also download a copy should you so wish.

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.
