CLUB WOOD SALE  -  Sat & Sun 25th to 26th July  (10am to 4pm)
As we all missed the regular AGM wood sale in March and stock from fallen timber that had been planked & band-sawed was starting to overflow, Paul & Greta set up their gazebos in the back garden for some socially distanced shopping.
Saturday saw some 15 Members visit within the first 90 minutes to go through spindle, bowl and wooden handle blanks from American Plane to Yew with about a dozen other varieties in between.  Several had to reverse their cars closer in order to carry away their spoils.
Saturday afternoon's heavy rain kept visitors to 3 while the dry but windy Sunday saw about 10 Members in all.
It was a very successful event for restocking one's wood blanks, refreshing superglue, abrasives etc from Trading Post and to catch up with colleagues in a safe, open air environment.

Following Prime Minister's briefing asking all Britons to maintain 'social distancing', the Committee have agreed to cancel all Thursday's Meeting at the Mudeford Wood Community Centre until further notice.

Decisions about further meetings will be made nearer the time they were planned to take place.

Rather than Members being left alone during the current crisis, the Committee proposed that we have a webpage to show/discuss work that members have been doing while in 'isolation'.
The idea is 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.
