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.
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.
Proud to say that The Trench took a Silver award for Best Branch Display at the IPMS Telford.
Everyone arrived at the Museum as arranged and booked in, we found that the ticket also included entrance to the Explosives Museum, just up the road.
We first visited HMS Alliance, Andy Trewins old boat, one of the pictures shows Andy in his actual bunk, Andy gave us a very interesting guided tour.
After visiting the rest of the museum it was decided to have some lunch, Terry suggested The Star, a Wetherspoons in Gosport High Street, after which we then visited the Explosives Museum, it covered all forms of Naval Armament history, the photo shows some naval guns at the entrance
