Training Day

Last Saturday, saw us opening up bright and early to get the hall set up and ready for our second Training Day of the year.  Unfortunately, we were down to just three lathes in operation due to being down one instructor, but it meant one less to put away at the end of the day.

We also had a last minute cancellation, but thankfully we were still able to fill the space which was great for our guest as he would have had to wait until September, so he was very happy.  So it just goes to show, if you are interested in these days but can’t get on one, let us know as you never know we might get a cancellation, as with most things in life you never know what tomorrow will bring.

Before we knew it, it was time for lunch and a fresh bunch of students for the afternoon sessions arrived ready to turn.  These days are open to anyone, so non members as well as paid up members all wanting to either try turning for the first time or expand on their knowledge and skills to take their turning to the next level.  We do seem to get a lot of beginners booking onto these sessions and it is always good to see them leaving with a smile on their face and clutching something proudly that they have made during the time with us.

As usual, a big thank you to Chris Fisher, Darren Brown, John Mitchell and Mick Close for giving up their Saturday to enable the Club to put on these days.  We also wish Zak a speedy recovery and hope to see him back turning again soon.  Also I have one other big thank to say and that has to be to Jan Fisher, for making those fantastic ginger biscuits that Chris shared with us which were extremely yummy and if we can book you for the June training day that would be great!!

So onto the next Training Day which is on the 15 Jun 24, which again is already fully booked.  If you want to put your name down in case there are any cancellations let me know.  If you do have to cancel last minute, we will where possible transfer your booking to later in the year or issue a refund.  The Sept and Nov Training Days are already starting to fill up, so don’t leave it too long if you want to get booked on one or both.

Thanks and see you all on the Workshop Night on Tues evening.
