The meeting of the Guild which was to be held on Saturday 28th. March 2020 in the Methodist Hall, Leyland was postponed.
It is hoped that there will be a meeting later this year and perhaps other events.
“Virtual Meeting” pages have been added to which some members have contributed their latest creations. More contributions are appearing and more are welcome. Last year’s pages can be accessed from the “News Archive” page. It can reached by clicking on the blue text.
The Henley Gathering was held last year but in a resisted form.It was on Saturday September 5th 2020
Here is a link to some of the pictures taken there:
The North West Meccano Guild (NWMG) had its beginnings in 1973 when a half dozen youthful enthusiasts, centred roughly around Leyland in Lancashire, met in somebody’s front room to try to form a group for the exchange of ideas and help.
This group soon grew and became the North West Meccano Guild with around forty members and now, forty odd years later, the Guild is still in existence and meets regularly to share ideas and enthusiasm, albeit the average age of the membership has risen somewhat!
The Guild holds two meetings in Leyland each year,in March and October (Annual General Meeting), and in addition the Guild exhibits a number of times during the year at model railway shows, traction engine rallies, museums, charitable events etc.
Membership of the Guild is open to all those with an interest in Meccano and model building and a warm welcome is extended to all who have not outgrown their youthful interest in the mechanical world.
