A big thank you to everyone who helped with the ‘club clean‘ up in readiness for the club opening this week. You all did a fantastic job and compliments have made that the place has never looked so good. Well done. I know it won’t last long as we all love to make shavings and dust but that’s what it’s all about. Thank you to those who put their names forward but didn’t get the call. I either had the wrong numbers for some reason or the roster was filled. Thank you anyway. We had a good turnout on Thursday for the first time and everyone enjoyed both the turning and meeting up. It was good to sit around the table at lunch time again. I have missed the banter. Everyone agreed that the preparations the club had made were excellent and that we all felt safe. Everyone complied with COVID restrictions and left the lathes, tools and equipment sanitised for the next session. A good time was had by all. Unfortunately my wife said ‘ oh no, not another bowl’!! A reminder to everyone that you must bring a negative COVID rapid flo test with you taken in the previous 24hours . If you are not aware, testing kits are readily available FREE from your local chemist or FREE on line on the NHS website. They usually deliver within a couple of days. Not very pleasant to do but essential at the moment so that we can all feel comfortable and safe. Happy turning everyone. Let’s make shavings John Greaves
