Heading towards the end of winter. I for one have really felt the cold and damp this year and, along with covid concerns, this has seen a large reduction in participation at the workshop. Pizza dinner before the monthly meeting has been a real success, so much so we have decided to continue it into the future for a while.
Club finances are ticking along quite well however, with good sales from the mill and cottage adding to workshop revenue.
The pen project is progressing very well, all 200 pens made and work on the pen boxes well under way. This will be a major revenue source for the club, and has shown to be a great team effort as well, with many members participating. Still a lot to do with the boxes, so if you would like to take part, talk to Colin Rhodes or Martin Lawley and they will help you be involved.
The workshop extension is now at lockup and Dan is on the job with lighting and power supply already. It looks really good, and the extra space will allow us to get on with the job of reorganizing the workshop layout to comply with council oh&s requirements. As reported earlier, the mill and accompanying wood store has to be moved in from Staghorn Flat, and this will be another big job. As you can see, this is a very busy time for us, and the committee will be calling for working bees as required. Please help out when ever you can.
New member inquiries has been steady, and I think in no small part due to the new web page and facebook changes by Katie. This has been long overdue and Katie is doing a top job here. Thanks Katie.
The scroll saw weekend just gone was a big success, with 16 attending and one apology. Well done Ed and the scroll saw team.
