West Ashby Church Festival and Hands On Night 11 Sept 18

 In Club Events, Hands on Nights


Over the weekend of the 8th and 9th Sept 18 there was 45 churches and chapels in the area that opened their doors to the public for the Horncastle & Villages Churches Festival.  For the second year running, Lincolnshire Wolds Woodturning Association has supported the West Ashby Church in the two day Church festival event with a stand to show off our talents.  Stuart Lowe very kindly offered to set up a stand on behalf of the Club and did us proud yet again.

There were other stands representing flower arranging, quilting and not to forget the home made cake display!  The Church Committee were very grateful to us for supporting the event.  The Club also made a step for the organ platform to give better access for the organist.



This month’s Hands on Night, saw another good turn out and lots of new faces eager to have a go on a lathe.  As we had people going away last month disappointed as they did not get chance to have a go on the lathe, we made sure this was not the case this month by setting up 6 lathes.  Thanks to all our resident turners, John Liles, Chris Fisher, Stuart Lowe, Mick Close, Peter Hallam and this month, John Mitchell and Richard Holland joined the team in offering to provide some excellent instruction to those wishing to have a go.


And lastly,

I would be really interested to find out, just how many out of the 72 members/guests who have kindly signed up to the News Post email subscription service, actually take the time to go and read these posts?  Therefore, if you would be so kind, just to leave a quick comment in the box below this News Post to let me know that my efforts are appreciated.  All posts are moderated, so they will not appear immediately after you hit submit.  Thanks.
