The Dorset Group of the 3mm Society has been meeting for six years. Recently we lost our permanent meeting place.Being a small group, we could not afford the rents being asked in this area.
So, after a lot of discussion we have decided to open our group to non members. This will be a modelling help group and there will not be the possibility of a group layout due to storage concerns at this moment in time.
As a result of all this, we intend to have an inaugural meeting on Saturday 21st April 2012 starting at 1pm.
Tom Rayer- The Weatherman- will kindly attend and give us a hands on insight into his methods. I have a list of the basics required to participate and weather your own stock please PM me for details.
The meeting will be held at:-
The Pullman Coach.
Avon Causeway Hotel (ex Hurn Railway Station)
Hurn
Christchurch
BH23 6AS

There will be a charge for this the amount depends on the numbers attending.
More thoughts and information will be given at the meeting, which I hope will lead to a Modellers Club.

The coutesy of letting me know if you intend to be there would be appreciated as there is limited accomodation.
Refreshments are available in the adjoining pub.

Good luck Steve, I'll try to make it, but it depends on our 'charges', or if one takes a turn for the worst it'll mean another happy day in Poole hospital. Have you asked 'Dodgey' to put up a poster, or summat similar, to help promote it ??

As Hennock will be appearing at the Bournemouth Exhibition next Saturday/Sunday 14th/15th March, we will have more information on the meeting- The more interest we have the more likely the group will flourish.
Best wishes

Not a show Paul but an attempt to get a modelling group going in this part of the world- demo by Tom of Weathering. Further aims can be discussed on 21st.
It is 21st April- wondered who is awake and who would spot it first!

A successful meeting on Saturday saw 10 attend. By all accounts all found the session of great interest.
Our next meetings will be:- Saturday 26th May & Saturday 23rd June. Hopefully we can decide wether it is viable to continue and if necessary book dates for the rest of the year. If you are in the area and need help or encouragement whatever scale you model in then you are most welcome
