We had a busy day. Tom counted 170 people though the roller door so with those that used other entrance we must have had over 200 visitors & more sales than last year. We had many enquiries re how AWW operates and how to join and at least 5 of these en- quires were very positive. Richard H former members also paid us a visit and left with a membership application to re-join. Congratulation to master carver/ intarsia maker extraordinaire Laurie who took out champion of show prize with a magnificent Intarsia Picture
