TIMS Membership

Whilst subscription to the TIMS website mailing list is free, full membership of the Telford & Ironbridge Meccano Society is only available with a 12 month subscription, ideally paid in person at the November meeting each year. Current members will receive FREE membership during 2021, owing to the cancellation of the June and November meetings in 2020.

Membership fees for 2021 (new members only)

  • Adults — £15.00
  • Couples — £15.00
  • Juniors — £15.00
  • All current members - FREE

Membership includes a personalised TIMS badge, subscription to the Newsletter, and public liability insurance when exhibiting at meetings in the UK.


The TIMS Newsletter features a report about the models displayed at the most recent meeting, and serves as good means of communication for those members who don't have access to our website. Below are the dates by which the Newsletter should be received. There may be slight variations in the arrival date, but in general they are as follows:-

  • Spring Edition: 15th March
  • Summer Edition: 15th June
  • Autumn Edition: 15th September
  • Winter Edition: 15th December

If you have any articles or model reports which you'd like to include in the next Newsletter, please contact our Newsletter Editor, David Bradley.

If you'd like to join TIMS, please contact Tim Martin at or visit one of our meetings. Tim will also provide current members with a copy of the Statement of Accounts for 2020 upon request.
