Our Competitions

We have various woodturning competitions during the year, namely the Monthly Turning Competition, Turning of the Year and a Christmas Turning Competition where the items are voted on or judged and cash prizes and Trophies are awarded.

As a Club, we have been extremely honoured to have been donated two Trophies by Mark Baker, one from Sue Harker, one by Peter Hallam and one by Barracks News, Tattershall to present to those talented winners of our competitions.
