CSW Constitution
At the March 2022 Annual Members Meeting, Members voted to accept amendments to the Club's Constitution.
As it is a requirement for Members to have access to their own copy, you may do so by downloading
 an < A4 MS Word Doc >  or < A5 Booklet .pdf >

The Booklet file is designed to produce an A5 booklet out of one A4 page printed on both sides and then folded in half.
It might appear on the screen that one page is upside down to the other but it should print out correctly provided you have selected 2-sided or Duplex Printing for your printer.

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 that 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.
