To join the North East Meccano Society send a cheque for £10.00(Senior) / £5.00(Junior and student) made payable to the North East Meccano Society to the treasurer F. Thompson at 17 Bryan Close, Hurworth on Tees, Darlington. DL2 2AS.Junior members are under 16 and student members are 21 and under and are still in full time education. Please include your name address, telephone number and any special Meccano interests you have (e.g. preferred colours, types of model etc.)

The society meets four times a year at a venue in Bedale, North Yorkshire to exchange views, display models and to buy and sell parts and sets. Once a year in October we hold a public exhibition which has historically been in Darlington. In addition to the meetings we publish a quarterly magazine which is posted to all the members. The magazine helps keep members in touch and serves as a medium for expanding the interest in the Meccano hobby.

It is not necessary to have any Meccano at all to join the society just a love of and interest in its history and development.

There is an attractive metal club badge available at an additional cost of £3.50, please add this to the membership fee if you would like one.

I am always interested in buying Meccano products of any type and age. Please contact me to discuss.

    Hi Ian

    I am head of the regional fundraising team at the Stroke Association charity.

    A stroke survivor has left us a quantity of meccano which he wishes us to sell to raise funds for the charity. He has informed us that it is valuable, with many brass wheels and gears, however I am not sure how we would find a buyer for the pieces.
    Can you help by pointing me in the direction of who would be interested in buying the pieces?
    Could you also tell me how we should categorise the pieces ie. Do we seperate out the plates, wheels, shafts, gears etc or do we sell as a “job lot”.

    Kind regards
