About the Guild

A typical meetingRunnymede Meccano Guild was founded by our President, Nick Rodgers, in 1986. Our membership has grown to almost 200 members worldwide, many of whom meet three times a year at Chertsey Hall in Surrey to display their latest models, share model building tips, and purchase more Meccano.

The Guild meets three times a year, usually the first Saturday in February, June and October.

The February meeting regularly features a Meccano Auction, and there is always a good selection of interesting lots to go for.

At our June meeting the Runnymede Shield is awarded to the owner of the best model as voted for by our members.

The October meeting is our AGM, and it also features the Bill Roberts Memorial Trophy Competition. The trophy is awarded to the owner of the best model as voted for by our members.

Dave Taylor, who attends all of our meetings, is the biggest Meccano trader in the UK and has a fantastic selection of original and reproduction Meccano parts.

Towards the end of each meeting we provide a splendid afternoon tea. It is our proud boast that nobody ever goes home hungry!

Three times a year to coincide with the meetings we publish the Runnymede Meccano Guild Magazine, a 60 page full-colour publication which is generally recognised as one of the best Meccano magazines available. The magazine focuses on the needs of both the novice and the experienced modeller and topics range from news items, technical details of mechanisms to full-blown constructional articles.
