WHR Supporters' Groups

The railway has several area groups across the UK. These are independent support organisations which are associated with the Society. These  area groups have been set up in areas where a good number of Society members live in order to give a more local focus to the railway. They have proved very effective in bringing members together for social evenings and outside visits to other railways.

The groups also work on projects such as restoring the loco K1, installing water tanks, tracklaying and fundraising. They can enable people to become involved in a practical way through 'homework' and other locally based projects without always having to travel long distances to the railway itself.
The Area Group Liaison officer Coordinator is Neil McMaster

If there is no group near you, why not look at setting one up? 

Forming a group is very easy;  there is a well-proven process, which Neil McMaster can assist you with. Applications for funds for start-up costs such as a mail shot to other members in your area and the hire of a venue can be made to Cymdeithas Rheilffordd Eryri, who will also provide the address labels for the mail shot.
