Wyre Forest Gamers
Wargaming in the Kidderminster area for over 46 years
Wyre Forest Wargames Club is a small club dedicated to all forms of wargaming. Originally we were based in Kidderminster, Worcestershire, although nowadays our members come from all over the surrounding area. We have members from all parts of Worcestershire, Herefordshire and Shropshire. Including Bewdley, Bromsgrove, Droitwich, Hereford, Ledbury, Stourport, Redditch, Worcester and Wolverhampton.
We meet twice a month, the first and third Sunday of the month normally. The first session of the month takes place at Holt Heath Village Hall, Holt, Worcestershire, WR6 6NE. The second meeting of the month is at St. Ambrose Parish Hall, Leswell St., Kidderminster, WORCS, DY10 1RP (see below for directions).
The next club meeting will be on 24th March at St Ambrose Parish Hall.

In mid October Nick paid a visit to see his friends in the Prague Wargames Club and play a couple of Seven Years War games. A brief account of his trip can be found here and there are more photos in Gallery 2023. He is hopeful that he can repeat the trip next year and include other members of Wyre Forest Gamers who wish to combine a holiday with some quality gaming..
