David Butcher
Club Chairman

As Chairman of the club I take a lead in most activities. My first role was to represent the club on the regional RAILEX committee. For several years I have only missed two monthly meetings! I am a great believer in promoting the club and was responsible for organising our club logo, banner and membership application forms. Fortunately, despite Covid-19 we have continued to attract new members via our old site and Railex. We promote safe modelling by encouraging members to wear masks in the clubrooms. I greatly value the work of all our members, particularly our Vice Chairman, Vernon Hoey, Secretary David Lambert and Treasurer David Hobbs. Also the work by Charlie Dunbar and Tony Insull on organising our share of the Railex Billboards is much appreciated.

Vernon Hoey
Vernon Hoey
Vice Chair

My name is Vernon Hoey and I am an avid modeller of the steam railways of Britain that operated during the 1920s and 1930s. I enjoy all aspects of modelling but gain the most satisfaction from kit and scratch building goods wagons and railway structures such as signal boxes and bridges. I have been a member of our club since moving to Wellington during the late 1980s. I trust that you will enjoy exploring our website and hope that you will join our club at some stage.
