North Somerset Model Society meets twice a month. The 2nd Tuesday of each month is our "business" meeting at the Ebdon Arms Public House in Wick St Lawrence, and one Sunday of each month is our model making meeting at the Helicopter Museum. Please take a look at the Club news page for the next meeting details.
In July we hold our Annual Model Show which is well attended by IPMS Clubs from all around the country and traders. We also attend other IPMS club shows as well as the National in Telford
All our meetings are held in Weston-Super-Mare at the Helicopter Museum, BS24 8PP
Sunday meetings are the 4th Sunday of each month from 10am to 4pm. Bring along a model or two to the Helicopter Museum.
Tuesday meetings are at the Ebdon Arms, Wick St Lawrence, Weston-super-Mare. We meet from 7.30pm for a drink and to talk about events and plan the direction of the club.
A member of the North Somerset Modellers, Phil Hollinshead, passed away recently and his wife ask the club if we could dispose of his models and tools on her behalf.
This we did and raised some money which the club topped up to £100.00, the money was to go to the RSPCA and MIND charities, £50.00 to each.
As the club is affiliated to the Helicopter Museum it was arranged for the cheques to be presented there, with Anne Simon for MIND and Rita Hinton for the RSPCA to receive the cheques..
