This week sees the 8th birthday of the Wrenbury & District Model Railway Club.
They formed with just 12 members and although 4 members have passed away in those 8 years and others have moved out of the county, they now have 27 members.
In addition to this growth in their numbers they have widened the variety of layouts they work on. N, 00, 0 gauge are well established and most recently 009 arrived in the form of a prize-winning layout 'St Margaret's Old Quay' which had been in storage for many years and was in need of a major upgrade. All 4 gauges will be running at their Open Doors event in the Wrenbury Village Hall Friday evening the 1st of July and all day Saturday the 2nd along with other visiting layouts and railway items.
The club has been invited to attend a number of outside events during the year and hope to see you at one or more of these. To ensure the safe transit of their portable layouts they are seeking a sponsor for a bespoke trailer which also offers that sponsor an advertising opportunity.
Visitors are welcome any Wednesday evening in the Wrenbury village hall between 7 and 10pm where members can offer advice about other aspects of their hobby plus a free drink and biscuit.
Their web site keeps the various photo albums of their progress updated and carries all their contact details.
We look forward to another successful year for this local club.
