4. Please try to space the seats 1 metre unless you are sitting with someone that you live with or travelled with in the same car to the meeting.
5. Use both sides of the display tables to avoid bunching on one side.
6. One customer at a time at the club shop, there will be plenty of time from 21.00 until 21.30 for purchases to be made.
7. Please keep the numbers down around the kitchen / tea area. Remember to remove your face covering before you drink your tea / coffee!!

 As most of us have been triple jabbed by now,  being mindful of the above should mean that we can keep meeting in relative safety for the foreseeable future , or until the government changes their advice on large gatherings.

See you all on the 20th Jan.

With the foreshortened season this year and in order to still have 5 competitions within the Club's year, the usual routine of Competitions being set at alternate meetings will instead be at every meeting.  Additionally, as we now have a significant number of new Members who are within their first years of woodturning and still mastering basic principles, the Competitions will tend to be simple projects which more practised Members should find they can develop into something more intricate.

Woodturners' Smock -
Lovell Workwear <WEBSITE> has been our supplier of Club smocks & sweatshirts for many years and I'm delighted to report that they have returned to producing 100% close-weave Cotton.
I've written a précis and Order Form
<HERE> and if we can get 10 items or more in a joint order, p&p would be waived.

Rather than Members being left alone during Covid, the Committee had elected to have a webpage to show/discuss work what Members had been doing while in 'isolation'.
The idea was to :
    show work for appreciating (or if requested, for appraisal),
    ask for advice on how to achieve something  or
    just to pass along some comment / humour.

This page is still available for viewing by clicking   Corona Page 

If anyone needs some wood, please email Paul here     or
telephone on the number listed on your Membership Card.

From time to time, the Club receives items offered for sale.
When it does, the 'Marketplace' button will appear in the TOP FRAME.
