Chairman’s Comments

There are two main topics I feel must be emphasised this month, and in terms of date order I feel I must refer to our new format for the ‘Hands On’ Day. From comments and reactions to our longer day format 10 am--4 pm., it would seem to be accepted that we achieved more involvement and that there was more time to circulate and do justice to the contributions of the contributors. I believe it will give us a better opportunity to develop the involvement of those who want to have a go. I would like to find a way of publicising these Days to let people come and see what we are up to with a view to recruiting new membership, don't forget we can all try and invite visitors ourselves, they don't have to stay all day, give it some thought!  


Next I have to say how delighted I am with the result of our magnificent effort at The Daventry Woodworks Show, a fuller report is included in this Newsletter. To achieve second place overall amongst formidable opposition,  judged independently, was testament to the achievements of a hardworking group of members who set it all up, to the contributions of pieces for display by 50% of the membership, and to the great support by all the visitors who turned up on the weekend. I truly believe we have put WMWT on the map.

See you at the next meeting,


Rocking Chair Springs

If you require Rocking Chair Springs then Ken Beresford informs me that J. A Milton, Ellesmere Business Park, Ellesmere, Shropshire SY112 0EW are able to supply.

They do mail order and the cost of a single spring is 8.19 + VAT + p&p.

For children’s chairs I understand that the springs can be annealed to make them weaker.
