We have resumed normal Wednesday meetings in our clubrooms, with some additional precautions against Covid. Sanitisers are available, and we are limiting the number of people in the main clubroom to avoid overcrowding. However, on Wednesdays there is plenty of additional space available as we have use of the main hall as well as the clubroom in the afternoon and evening. We are keeping windows open to improve ventilation, so it may be a little chilly if the weather is bad.
Farnham and District Model Railway Club (F&DMRC) meets every Wednesday from 2.00 pm to 9.00pm. Our clubroom is in the Wrecclesham Community Centre, Greenfield Road, Wrecclesham, Farnham, Surrey GU9 8TJ .

We have active groups in O, OO, P4, 009, and N gauges. Our Greenfield Sidings OO gauge, Brixcombe P4, Wickwar N gauge, and Haydon Square o gauge layouts already on the exhibition circuit. Modules of members 009 layouts can be joined and exhibited, and a new OO gauge layout is currently being worked on. Club members also have interests in other scales and prototypes including gauge 1, 16mm, trams, and 2mm finescale.
The club has test tracks for OO, P4 and N gauge. We have at least 2 open days each year, and our big event is our exhibition every October. We also run a programme of demonstrations, presentations and events throughout the year.
New members are always welcome no matter whether an experienced modeller or just starting. Because we have several new members with little experience of railway modelling from time to time we run a series of 60 minute hands-on workshops on the basics of railway modelling.
Unfortunately there is no step-free access to the club room as it is not provided by the council, but there is wheelchair access to the main hall on Wednesday afternoons and we offer a reduced membership rate for those unable to go up the steps.
If you want to get involved in our club layouts and run your models why not come along one Wednesday and see what we do?
