Sunday Meeting

Modeller's hard at work at the February meeting


Despite the cold weather, modelers were well insulated at the Helicopter Museum and lots of great progress was made. Why not come and join us on a Sunday morning, see this page for details of our meetings during 2019.

Woolpack Meeting - 3rd Tuesday Monthly

Friends of the Helicopter Museum


The 'Woolpack' meeting was originally established as a regular get-together for local members of the "Friends of the Helicopter Museum" - many of whom were also either volunteers at the Museum and/or model club members.  As well as chatting about the Museum, we spent progressively more time discussing general subjects but often they were club-related.  These days it has just become an extension of the club meeting on the 2nd Tuesday, but without any of the formality (such as it is). Any club member is welcome to come along for a drink and a chat if you are free that evening - tomorrow night, 16th, is the next one at 'The Woolpack', at St.Georges.
