Bury Metro Marine Modelling Society is a friendly and active club, although members can sail 7 days a week, the club house is only open on Sundays and Wednesdays from 9.30 am till 1 pm During British Summer time and 10 am till 12 noon approximately during winter daylight saving time. Refreshments are available from the kitchen. The clubhouse also has two toilets for members and guests. The clubhouse is regularly open on Tuesdays and Fridays at approx. 9.30 am till 12 noon when the Yachting members attend. The clubhouse is not normally open Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays. The one exception to Saturday sailing is if the fishing club has a competition on.


The 2022/23 membership is currently £15.00, if paid before end of May 2022 for existing members. If not paid by end of May the Joining fee of £5.00 will be added. The membership fee is reviewed annually at the A.G.M. There is a single £5.00 joining fee to cover administration, badges and club book, etc. Membership fees cover third party insurance for members throughout the UK, so if you visit another club you are insured. Anybody wanting to try out our facilities are welcome and may come free for up to 3 times, and then will be asked to become a member. People joining halfway through our season will pay £12.50, inclusive of the joining fee, for the balance of that season.

The Club has a rescue dinghy with a small electric outboard motor, and oars and life jackets (which you must wear) for recovering of model boats marooned in the middle of the lake.

Sailing is permitted 7 days a week, though care and courtesy  should be shown to fishermen, but the club house is only open on the above days.

Tuesdays and Fridays are generally reserved for yachting, but this is dependent on the weather and the availability of a key-holder. This is controlled by Graham Sleight, the secretary, and Mike Bondi who are member of the Yachting section. If in doubt, contact Mike after 9:00 am on 07950 224680 Please note that Tuesdays are now open again.
