2017 is our 50th Anniversary year and it is important to reconfirm the principles, disciplines, interests of our hobby. Model Engineering in all its many and varied interests that are the very essence of what West Huntspill Model Engineering has always been all about. Always going forward a united team and keep the sense of fun and interest that made WHMES what is and will be.

The Parish Council now hold our society in very high regards and we are very lucky in that respect, therefore it is our best interests to maintain that good relationship.

A new Website has been set up running in parallel with the Newsletter all to improve communication and understanding within the society with the main aim to promote model engineering in all its disciplines.

In light of the requirements for due diligence at the railway at all times, new and appropriate procedures will be set in place, all for the protection and safeguarding all members.

Boiler Testing and testers will have new procedure to work to in future again based upon the requirements of good working practice and procedure.

Our new Social Secretary Mark Sweet has already set up a social programme for the coming year.

Our Membership Secretary Roger Flower has completely revamped the membership documentation and membership process to make it far easier to check and or hand over.

A sub committee has been agreed to head up and run the 50th Anniversary proceedings.

We are a Model Engineering Society dedicated to the advancement and pleasure of model engineering. To me I always remember the first day I met the society and said I was building a terrier. The help and interest was amazing. That’s what model engineering is all about.

We all must pull together to make sure that the very principles and disciplines of Model engineering that has made West Huntspill Model Engineering the very special and respected society it is. It is the membership that makes the society and that is our mission.

Happy Steaming.
