Wyre Forest Gamers

Wargaming in the Kidderminster area for over 40 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 once a month, the 3rd Sunday of the month normally, but occasionally there are two meetings in the same month. We meet at St. Ambrose Parish Hall, Leswell St., Kidderminster, WORCS, DY10 1RP. Our alternative venue is Holt Heath Village Hall, Holt, Worcestershire, WR6 6NE.

The next club meeting will be on 10th October 2021 at Holt Village Hall
