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 and in June 2018 the Club became a Charitable Company Limited by Guarantee registered in England number 3042204, registered Charity number 1178760.
The Club operates a permanent railway site within the Taunton area at Vivary Park. 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 19:30 until 21:30. However, during the summer months these meetings become outdoor activities, gatherings taking place at Vivary 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.
