Chairman’s Notes for Tuesday 25th Sept 18
A warm welcome to all our members and guests especially any new members.
We had a very good turnout at the last ‘hands on night’ with several guests who we hope will become members. Thanks to all our resident turners and to John Mitchell and Richard Holland who joined the team and provided some additional instruction.
Thanks to Stuart Lowe who once again, on behalf of the club, provided a display of work at the recent West Ashby Church Festival. The Church Committee were very grateful to us for supporting the event.
You all may be aware of the ‘Offensive Weapons Bill (Article 15)’ which if passed in its present form will prevent any sharp objects being delivered to a residential address. At the recent committee meeting it was decided that we, as a club, would write to each MP within our area along with an invitation to visit the club at a ‘hands on night’. As members you can also help by visiting our web site where there is a post regarding the ‘Offensive Weapons Bill’ and signing the on-line petition for the amendment to the Act. If you wish to write to your MP, we can supply a draft format of a letter.
Tickets are now available for our Christmas Dinner at ‘The Splash’ Little Cawthorpe. Available from John at the desk £12.50.
Don’t forget to get your tickets for our full day with Emma the Tiny Turner on Saturday October 20th. £10 Coffee and tea provided bring your own lunch.
We still require more prizes for our Air Ambulance Raffle. If any member could approach a local business where they have a contact and persuade them to donate a prize it would be appreciated.
Thanks to all who donated discarded clothing, shoes, bedding and handbags etc. Please continue to bring items to our collection point, as this is an excellent way to contribute to the Air Ambulance.
Don’t forget to visit our shop as we have a full range of finishing products and many other interesting items – all at bargain prices.
