The very essence of the club is the monthly meetings where we gather in Headway. Unfortunately we are unable to do this while the epidemic persists and regulations forbid it. It is very likely that we shall be unable to meet face to face until well into next year.
The committee has not been idle and have held several meetings during the last few months. The minutes have been circulated. So what have we been doing?
Three online demonstrations by professional turners and two workshop tours have been held. These have used the Zoom platform. There is an enthusiastic group of members who have attended these but it is minority of our membership. Where are you all? I realise that some are not keen or are lukewarm about such online presentations but these events do offer you the opportunity to keep involved with woodturning. Peter Dennis has sent out emails with information about these presentations. Why not give one a try? The next is by Paul Hannaby on Thursday October 29th.
We organised a socially distanced wood collection and distribution event in September. This worked well and safely.
The Club AGM is online on the evening of 26th November. Details will be sent out nearer the date. It is important that as many members possible join us. If you have comments, suggestions or information that may help the club please make them known at the meeting or send them to me or Peter Dennis prior to the meeting.
We are doing our best to maintain contact with you all. As soon as we can we intend to restart training sessions and full meetings. Rebuilding the club will need the involvement of you all.
Keep safe and well.
Herefordshire Woodturning Club
A friendly group
of people passionate
The Herefordshire Woodturners were established in 2004
and since has been the local woodturning club for Herefordshire. All visitors are welcome from novices to experts.
Within the group we have years of experience in all aspects of woodturning, everyone’s a beginner at some point! The club has an active training programme available to all members.
The group loves to learn, we all have individual skills and love to share these with each other.
We all have the common interest in woodturning making it easy to meet new people and socialise within the group.
We meet at Headway House
