Obituary

It is with deep regret I have to report the passing of one of our members. John (Jack) Southern passed away on the 29th May at Gateshead Queen Elizabeth Hospital. He had suffered ill health for a number of years, but still met with us on a regular basis to operate his extensive railroad. Jack was a member of this club since the late 60’s and was involved with many of our layouts at exhibitions. He was a close personal friend since he joined our club and will be greatly missed by all our members.

We’ve moved (again).

We have moved (again). For the foreseeable future our new address is. Room 4, The Eco Centre, Windmill Way, Hebburn NE31 1SR. Come along and join in the chaos.

Visitors and prospective new members are always welcome.

Obituary

It is with deep regret I have to report the passing of one of our members. John Bell passed away on the 7th August at South Tyneside Hospital. He had suffered ill health for a number of years, but still turned up at our club to share his particular kind of good humour with us. John was a member of this club since the late 50’s and was involved with many of our layouts at exhibitions. He was a close personal friend since 1960 and will be greatly missed by all our members.
