The aim of the Society is to foster and promote the hobby of model engineering in all its aspects and to help, encourage and provide facilities for its members.

The Wirral Model Engineering Society (WMES) was founded by Mr Harry Roberts in November 1961. The first meeting was held at his home and a Society was formed. Membership quickly increased and soon meetings were being held once a month. The Society now holds its meetings in the WI Hall in Thornton Hough. These being held on the first and third Thursdays of each month. Talks are arranged on a wide variety of topics together with demonstrations of members work and interests. Visits to exhibitions and places of interest are arranged where sufficient numbers are forthcoming. Social events are also popular.

You are most welcome to come along to a couple of meetings or view the activities in the Park to help decide whether you want to join. We will always try our best to provide any information you need to make up your mind.

The Society is a member of the Northern Association of Model Engineers (NAME).
