Newton-le-Willows Amateur Radio Club is dedicated to enhancing your experience of Amateur Radio. No matter what your age, gender, background, or interest, Newton-le-Willows Amateur Radio Club should be your club of choice. We are a very active club, with activities being planned continually, from antenna workshops, to emerging technology, to CW and valve equipment we aim to have something for everyone.

If you are new to Amateur Radio, or just curious and want to find out more then please get in touch – Email Us , and we will help as much as we can, or you can turn up to one of our regular meetings at Derbyshire Hill Family & Community Centre, Derbyshire Hill Rd, Parr, St Helens. WA9 2LU.

We are also looking for anyone who would like to either start Amateur Radio as a hobby, or is interested in going further within the hobby. We are offering training at all levels, or if you prefer you can teach yourself at home, and attend only for the test and practical assessments. Our members are all very approachable and will do their utmost to help you in any way they can in order that your training goes as smoothly as possible.

After you have completed your training your Foundation License you will likely have more questions than when you started. Newton-le-Willows Amateur Radio club will ensure you become a competent operator by offering you an Elmer service (you will have a seasoned Amateur assigned to you who will mentor you until you become confident enough to operate solo).  We will offer all the assistance you need to ensure you enjoy Amateur Radio as a hobby.

We are actively seeking new members from the St Helens,  Lowton, Golborne, Newton-le-Willows, Haydock, Cultcheth, Croft and surrounding areas. If you are interested in joining then please get in touch via our Contact Us page, or alternatively join us on Thursday evenings or the first Saturday of every month at:

Derbyshire Hill Family & Community Centre,

Derbyshire Hill Rd,


St Helens.


Club Location


Meetings start at 19:00 until around 21:00.

You may attend up to three meetings per year free of charge, after that we ask you to decide if you wish to become a member or not. Should you decide that you wish to become a member, then there is a £15 annual membership fee, and a weekly subscription of £3.50. Children under 18 years are FREE – no membership, and no subscription – we feel it is important to encourage younger members to join, and to this end we have waived all fees for those under 18 years of age.

Should you wish to join but are struggling financially, then please come along and speak to us – we can offer reduced rates, and in exceptional circumstances will consider waiving the fees totally (though we cannot waive exam fee’s which are paid directly to the RSGB).
