Joining HSME

New members are always welcome.

As a member you will be signing up to become a Volunteer and a Model Engineer at The Hereford Society of Model Engineers Ltd.
You will be expected to bring to the club a skill that will benefit its development.
If you are accepted as a member by the Committee, you will be issued with a Membership Card and number.  Membership is reviewed yearly.

Your membership fee will be used to pay for utilities, such as Electric, Water, Gas, Alarms, Fire extinguishers, Free tea and hot soup in the winter and your Club magazine.

Your Membership Card entitles the card holder to occupy one seat only in non-busy or quiet periods ie. when there are NO paying public waiting for a ride.

Your Skills will be needed on a Tuesday Work Day (between 9am to 2.30pm) for the maintenance of the site, Saturday morning Training of our Young Engineers and Sunday Public running days, which are generally the second and last weekend of the month.

Duties on a public running day will include (but not limited to):
Car parking, Guards, Drivers, Station staff, Signalman, Gate keeper to the pond, Elevated track staff.
Wives and partners are encouraged to volunteer to help in the kitchen.

The club also attends other events in the Herefordshire area which require members assistance.

We have winter talks, evenings to give you the chance to show off your engineering skills with things you make at home, a Christmas social party and an annual club dinner.


Visit us on a running day to find out what we do.

Get the chairman’s tour – ask for Wally Sykes and see behind the scenes.
