It is with regret that we have had to cancel our exhibition in February 2021 owing to the ongoing restrictions and uncertainty around Covid-19. It is not possible to take the financial risk nor to risk the safety of all involved. However most of the layouts that were booked for 2021 have agreed to come to our 2022 exhibition assuming, of course, that things have returned to something like normal by then
Unfortunately club nights are cancelled until further notice due to the COVID virus restrictions on meetings though hopefully this wont be long. Many club members are keeping in touch social media, e-mail and via the club news letter, sharing their modelling activities, providing encouragement, humour and the 'Why didn't I think of that...'
After some 30 years in the same premises Tonbridge Model Railway Club (TMRC) finds itself in need of a new home. We are a friendly club of 50 members and prior to the lockdown we met once a week, traditionally on a Thursday evening, to build model railways, have talks and socialise. We are also the organisers of the very popular annual Tonbridge model railway exhibition, which but for the pandemic would have reached its 40th show in February 2021. If you can assist with a venue for us to meet and store our layouts, please contact us. We will be happy to hear from you. (Use 'Contact us' page)
On a brighter note the clubs 2020 Christmas photo competition was held successfully with online voting for the first time. Winners will be announced in the next newsletter
The clubs new 'members only' Facebook page went live in February 2021 along side our normal Facebook public site.
