OUR GROUP, ACTIVITIES & HISTORY
The Berwick Wargames Association is not a formally constituted club, but a group of wargaming friends who have a common passion for historical miniatures wargaming.
MEETINGS – Wednesday & Saturday
We meet each Wednesday evening from 7:30pm until late. We also meet mostly every second Saturday from 1:30pm until 6:00pm.

Most of our members have been wargaming for many years, but we have members who have been gaming for only a few years, and one who has gamed for nearly fifty years.
