News and Updates

10th November 2015

The Society held their Annual General Meeting at the Old Ship Inn, Bridlington.

Progress (albeit slow at times !) is continuing on the Club Layouts – “Filey” (OO Gauge) and “Holgate” (N Gauge) whilst the other OO Gauge Layout “Basin Street” is currently planned to be temporarily stored whilst a new layout is envisaged to fill the space currently allocated to “Basin Street”.

During the meeting, Harold Belhouse was duly elected as Chairman to take over from (Acting Chairman) Neil Porter, whilst our Secretary and Treasurer were happy to continue in their roles and were thereby duly re-elected to those posts.

Provisional plans were made for an Open Day during the Summer of 2016 and further announcement regarding this will be made once a date is finalised.

Happily, our membership remains at a healthy level and indeed we have been fortunate to welcome a few new members in recent times. However, new members and indeed visitors are always welcome at the clubroom – for contact details please refer to the “Contacts” page.

With great sadness, we have to report the sudden and untimely passing of Pat Westran, one of the founder members of BMRS.

Pat was a source of great inspiration (and no small amount of amusement) for many years in our various clubrooms and was hugely instrumental in keeping the club going after the "split-up".

Sincere sympathies to his daughter Vivian.

Sadly, yet more members have gone their "seperate ways", but the remainder are sworn to keep the Society going - and now into our 30th year as well !
Work on the Club layouts is continuing apace but we are always on the lookout for new members to help - so feel free to come along on a Tuesday evening, or call us to find out more.

Thanks to a marvellous gesture by Mrs. P. Tranmer, the Society has now become the proud custodians of a marvellous "mini-layout" based on the railway station at Filey.
Photographs and details to be published on these pages in the near future.

A busy morning - all hands on deck to clear out the premises in order for contractors to come in and carry out maintenance work. Stripped out everything and transferred to another property nearby.
Constant shouts of either "So THAT's where it went", or else "What on earth did we save THIS for ?" as the job was going on.

Clearing out - a long way to go !

Hey - we're getting there

Job Done !

Now the bad news - have to move it back again next week
