The Taunton and District Society of Model and Experimental Engineers was formed in 1946 by a group of 20 local model engineers. Since then the membership number has grown with members' interests today encompassing nearly all aspects of the hobby. On 1st May 1995 the club became Taunton Model Engineers a Company Limited by Guarantee.
The Club operates two permanent railway sites within the Taunton area, one at Vivary Park and the other at Creech St. Michael. Regular meetings are held on the 1st and 3rd. Tuesday of each month. During the autumn, winter and spring seasons these meetings are held at the Village Hall, Stoke St. Mary from 7.30pm until 10.00pm. However, during the summer months these meetings become outdoor activities, gatherings taking place at Vivary, Creech and other enjoyable venues. Take the events link for an up to date list of all these future meetings.
Our club is guided by an elected committee of members. The Members' Handbook, which all members receive upon joining, explains the club rules regarding election to the committee and the procedures by which it conducts its day to day business.
