It gives us great pleasure to finally announce confirmation that Romsey Modellers are now an official UK IPMS branch.
We are now listed on the homepage’s link to branches, which includes contact details for the secretary (Paul) and a link this website. We are determined not to lose the Romsey Modellers name tag we’ve had since the clubs inception, and so we’ll be known as IPMS Romsey (Romsey Modellers). I anticipate we’ll be known to most by our original name, which is just fine, as saying “IPMS Romsey open brackets Romsey Modellers close brackets” is a bit of a mouth full!!
The impact of this affiliation will not be seen immediately, though we expect an upturn in membership, improved exposure through the IPMS website, and the publishing of our articles in the bi-monthly IPMS magazine. Long term we’ll need to look at possibly displaying at Scale ModelWorld, Telford. The rest we’ll just have to wait and see!
