We are a forum where we exchange ideas and experiences for anyone, be they engineers or not, having an interest in engineering.
Under 'normal' circumstances our aim would be to promote widespread discussion and debate through a programme of talks and visits
related to advances and achievements in engineering in the world today.
If you are at all interested in Engineering, then the Norwich Engineering Society is for you!
NES Council, the Society's ruling body, is well aware that 2021 - 2022 again will not be a 'normal' season.
Council very much hopes that all our Members are managing under these challenging circumstances!
If a Member feels the need for advice or just to talk to someone, please don't hesitate in contacting a Council Member
for a chat. If they can't help, they might well be able to suggest someone who can.
Sadly, again we won't be able to follow our traditional format!! Council have decided that, as vitual Meetings served us well in 2020 - 2021, we
will continue to use this format in 2021-2022. Zoom Meetings are by invitation only. Invitations will sent by email to all Members that have
registered an email with us. Therefore, if a Member wishes to receive
an invitation, it is a Member's responsibility to ensure that the Society has the correct address to send it to.
Several important decisions were ratified at our recent virtual AGM:
1) There will be no Membership Fee in any category for the coming season. Membership for 2020-21 will automatically roll over to 2021 - 2022.
2) The NES Yearbook, in its normal form, will not be pubished for 2021 - 2022.
3) The website will be used as the standard reference point for the Society. All events will be notified here.
Council would like to remind Members that the Society has a resource that might be useful in passing time i.e. pdf's of many of the past talks
and some of the visits. This data bank has been updated recently. To access them you only have login and then move to the appropriate tab on
As an added extra the Society has created a public page that has a variety of engineering related videos, youtubes, links etc. The Society would
like to encourage you to suggest additional links to be entered onto the page. Please contact
the webmaster via email about suggestions for additions to the present list.
Talk pdfs available Pdfs of many of our talks are available
on the 'Past Presentations' page of the Member's Pages. To view it please log in to your 'Members Page'.
If you are a NES member but are not registered for Member Pages access please consult your
blue handbook on how to register. If you aren't a Member here is a good reason to join us!!
Keeping you informed!
Over time the Membership database gets out of date. This is particularly true with email addresses!
To get important messages, such as visits. through to Members it is vital that the necessary contact derails are correct!
Changes can easily be made by through a Member's Home Page!!

Approaching Brancaster Bay
Courstesy of the McAuly Flying Club the Society held its now traditional Flying Day at Little Snoring airfield early in September. The weather
conditions were almost perfect for most of the day. So much so that the Lincolnshire coast was clearly visible once a flight was a
few hundred metres from the ground.

Some Menbers were lucky enough to hear 'You have control'
McAuly pilots were kept busy with over 25 Member flight seats taken throughout the day. Very much enjoyed by all.
