The programme has now been updated to include the whole of 2019.

The library was updated in September to include a few more books.

It has been suggested that this website should include a ‘for sale’ Page, however so far nobody has responded. If you have any items to include please send an email to the webmaster with brief description and your mobile phone number.

The Webmaster hopes that you all enjoyed the Christmas break and wishes you a very happy new year with lots of woodturning.

It is with deep sadness we report that Barry, our very popular ‘Tea Boy’ passed away on Tuesday 5 March after a short illness. He had been on the committee since our club started in 2009 and he will be greatly missed by us all. Our deepest sympathy goes to his wife, Joyce and the rest of his family.
