Chairman’s Comments






¨ September  18th..—  Full Day — Demonstration by Andrew Hall.

¨ October 16th..— Threequarter Day — ‘Open Day’

¨ November 20th. —- Full Day —- Demonstration by Frans Brown.

What a great Hands On Day we held in August, 8 different initiatives/ techniques on offer, a visit from Peter Carless, the AWGB Regional Rep, 11 entrants in the Chairman’s Challenge, and considering a fewer number of members were able to make the meeting, no doubt due to holidays and other commitments, it was a good effort. A wonderful Display Table, many comments regarding the quality on display which is definitely greatly improved. All in all Many Thanks to all contributors, ‘you know who you are’!!


Please make an effort to make it a Full House & more for our next demonstrator Andrew Hall, 18th. Sept.,-------- do your best to encourage any visitors by letting as many members you may know from other clubs, or even family and friends. Andrew has a great reputation for unique work, Hats of all shapes and sizes & much more.


I am delighted to tell you our good friends from Coombe Abbey have agreed to bring their Camera Set Up along and operate it on the day. You are all aware how poor the viewing has been at past demos. because of our outdated kit. I hope we can aspire to acquiring some similar equipment when we see the benefits that it gives.


One final thought to have in mind is our Open Day in October , we need your items for ‘Display of Members’ Work’, let’s have as varied a display as possible, of all abilities, we don’t want to discourage potential members by only showing the best!! I will do my bit to redress the balance!!.


See you all in Sept.
