Horsham Model Railway Club are holding a small exhibition in Swan Walk this half-term holiday. The show will be in Unit 67 (between JD Sports and Sports Direct) and will be open from 10am – 4:30pm Monday to Saturday and 10:30am - 4:30pm on Sunday 21 February only.

The club are rapidly outgrowing their current home at St Leonard’s Church Hall and are looking for a new venue. Founded in 2008 the club has grown from 18 members and a single layout to 50 members and four layouts.

Whilst we have been very happy at St Leonard’s and they have been a very accommodating landlord there simply isn’t enough space to store everything.

In an ideal world we would have our own premises where we could leave layouts erected and work on them at any time rather than just our weekly club meetings but unless we find a generous benefactor this is prohibitively expensive in the Horsham area.

So we are happy to explore any options. We need a minimum of 100 sq ft permanent secure storage, an area equivalent to the size of one badminton court for club meetings with the usual services and sufficient parking on site or nearby. Currently meetings take place every Wednesday evening with two of them starting in mid-afternoon.

If you are a landlord with some cheap space available, another club looking to share premises or maybe even a philanthropic lottery winner who wants to help a thriving community club please email or call 01403 266639.
