HEREFORDSHIRE WOODTURNERS COVID-19
UPDATE MAY 2020
I hope that all members are well and have either avoided the infection or have recovered from it.
Whilst the lockdown is being relaxed the government’s social distancing recommendations mean the club cannot gather for the meetings planned for May 28th and June 25th 2020.
These meetings are cancelled.
The effects of the epidemic and particularly the measures being taken to combat it mean that we are unlikely to return to anything like regular meetings for many months. It is likely that the July and August meetings, and perhaps more, will be cancelled too. We had planned to have a site at the The Three Counties Show but it is cancelled and there must be some doubt as to whether the Autumn Show will take place.
On a more positive note there have been some ‘virtual’ demonstrations via Zoom online of which Peter Dennis has informed you.
The committee is intending to hold its scheduled meeting in early June online. Included on the agenda will be a consideration of arranging club online demonstrations for members to view. We shall also discuss a proposal for the club membership subscriptions paid for 2020 to be wholly or partially transferred to 2021.
I am keen that the club continues to function, at least to a limited extent, during the next few months and will keep you informed about plans we make.
This epidemic is serious. Many of our members and their families are vulnerable to the infection. Our first responsibility is to consider your safety in any arrangements we may make. I hope you remain well and can continue turning.
Remember scrupulous attention to hand washing.
If self isolating, where better than the workshop?
The 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
