Christmas Message

Hello Everyone,

I hope you are all keeping well and managing to avoid ‘the virus’ as well as other seasonal coughs and colds.

It has been a long time since we all met and enjoyed each other’s company in 3D. Although it has been a tough year for everybody, and it is not over yet, there is at last light at the end of the tunnel with the arrival of the vaccines. Some estimates say that it could be another 10 months before we feel a real improvement and return to free movement and activities. We have been very patient, and with a bit of support from each other we will get back together next year so that we can enjoy our woodturning once again. We have already, very carefully, got small numbers back into the workshop, and will increase, or decrease, those numbers and sessions as dictated by the government restrictions.

Quite a number of us in the club are at the age of being placed near the top of the queue to receive the vaccination because we are at the age at risk of getting the virus. It is all a very fine, and serious, balancing act between our physical and mental health. Rest assured that your committee, and fellow members, are monitoring the situation so that we are all safe and can get back to our monthly meetings, live demonstrations and face to face meetings at the club and in the community.

For now I wish you all a very Merry Christmas, with telephone, Zoom, Skype, Facetime etc contact with friends and family, a Happy New Year, and good health in 2021.
Please keep in contact with other members of the club over the next months by entering the club competitions, Internet demonstrations and meetings and the occasional coffee in a garden or café where permitted.

Keep safe and I very much look forward to seeing every one of you again in a wood shavings strewn environment.

Rolf
