There are currently over 90 members of the society and joining is open to anyone regardless of their background.  Our site at Almondell offers much more than just model engineering.

Members come from all walks of life and include accountants, building trades people, bankers, farmers, hoteliers, musicians, teachers, public servants, engineers as well as job seekers, retired people and those in full and part time education.

Benefits include full participation in the clubs activities such as running and building models, special visits, talks  and instructional lectures.  Full access to the club facilities, public liability and accident insurance and if you own a steam locomotive, boiler inspection and insurance.

The current full adult membership fee is £60.00 per person, per annum, but the Society offers a number of other categories of membership which are explained on the downloadable membership form.

So what other reasons do you need to join ESME?
