Consett Table Top Society
Consett Tabletop Games Society meets every 2nd and 4th Sunday of the month from 1.00 – 6.00pm in Consett Methodist Church Hall. They play board games and tabletop strategy games such as those in the Warhammer universe. If your experience of board games is limited to Monopoly at Christmas, you’d be amazed at the variety and inventiveness of the games available now. Our photographer knows that though these games can become very complex with experience, they are easy to pick up and then can really become involving. The Warhammer models have all been painted by members of the group, which can itself become a very satisfying part of the hobby. The members are also very keen to introduce new players to these games and are also happy for people to bring games they want to play up to the meetings. – Photos by Chris Bruce
Consett & District Model Railway Club
Consett and District Model Railway Club’s goal is to promote and encourage the wonderful hobby of model railways. Whether you are new to model railways, looking to get started or an old pro looking to share your knowledge with like-minded people, this local model railway club has something for everyone. The club was founded in the late 1980’s to encourage members to enjoy and build model layouts and run model trains. They meet at Blackhill Community Centre on Friday evenings from 6pm. They currently have one completed layout as a permanent display and are currently making a second. They used to transport the layouts to various places around the area for shows etc. but at present are more focussed on completing the second layout. Photos by George Ledger
