About the Club

The South East London Meccano Club was formed in 1976 to give Meccano enthusiasts in the area a chance to meet and swap ideas.

We hold four meetings a year and a public Meccano Show in the autumn. Members receive the club newsletter SELMEC News four times a year.

At the informal meetings members bring along their latest models (completed, or in whatever unfinished state they may be in at the time!) and all are given the chance to give a short talk about them. You can also buy new and user parts from our resident trader, Meccanoman Dave Taylor.

Our annual Meccano Show is a one day event open to the public.
All members are encouraged to attend — with their models of course!

We have about 60 members of all ages, and it doesn't matter if you are an experienced modeller or someone starting with their very first set. By the way, you don't actually have to build Meccano models to join the club — although it is better that you do; the meetings would be dull otherwise — but some members prefer to collect rare parts or sets, or are interested in Meccano literature. In fact, the club is open to anyone, male or female, with an interest in Meccano.

Our annual subscription is £10.00 for adult/family membership. The club welcomes visitors to our meetings, and only if these visits become frequent or regular will they be expected to become members and thus contribute to the expenses incurred in providing the facilities enjoyed by all.

If you would like more information about the club, please contact our Secretary (top right) or just turn up at one of our meetings or events.

We look forward to seeing you!
