Chairman’s Comments

For those who were unable to attend the AGM you will see that the committee, with the exception of Ken Beresford who is unable to continue, was re-elected to continue to look after the running of the club. We must thank Ken for his contributions over recent times, sorting out the equipment and clearing out our storeroom. We look forward to seeing him when his commitments allow.

It was encouraging to see a steady stream of visitors to our ‘Hands On Day’ in February, this was as the result of a notice we placed in the local Coleshill Gazette newspaper. If anyone can suggest any other publications which would accept a notice in their What's On page, please let us know. I trust we made our visitors welcome and encouraged them to join us as members in order to develop their woodturning.

Finally can I ask you to continue to bring your contributions to the Chairman's Challenge, particularly the Basic Category, and Items for the Display Table.

See you in March.




You may or may not have noticed that this issue of the Newsletter is dated February/March. The reason for this is that  I feel it would be better if the newsletter was published at the beginning of the month and bore that month’s date, so the next issue will be the April issue and it will be published at the beginning of April.
