This is run by South Durham Society of Model Engineers
They meet in the community centre basement (every Tuesday at 7pm), where a workshop is located. Members can learn how to safely operate Milling Machines, Lathes and other workshop tools.
A community room with a library of engineering material is available where members can sit and chat about anything over a cuppa and biscuits. Members often continue discussions in the community centre bar. The club periodically invites guest speakers to talk about various topical things.
The Society has an outside elevated track in the grounds of Hurworth Grange. Our members are able to use the main track when they so desire. We also carry out public running on special occasions with our portable track.
