Chairman's January Message

Chairman's January Message

15 Jan 2023

A very happy new year to everyone and let's hope that 2023 is a little less turbulent than last year despite the current memoirs being aired in public. I also hope that 2023 will be healthier year and many more of you will feel blessed to attend the lectures. We start the new year with Mark Hill, who you will know from his many appearances on the Antiques Road Show. He is coming to us on the 18th January to talk about Hot Stuff - the birth of Studio Glass.

Our next Special Interest Day is March 21st when Valerie Woodgate makes a return appearance to discuss the Pre Raphaelites. Application forms will be available at the next meeting and there will be one on the website as well as with this email. I’m sure it will be an interesting day. It was the last Special Interest Day that Monica Trigg organised for us but please remember to send or give your forms to me.

We have managed to secure a Community Grant of £250 from headquarters, which this year we are giving to Milton’s Cottage and in the summer we are planning a combined event with them, more of that later. I think we are very lucky to have such a gem in the geography of our society and hopefully we can introduce it to many more people. 

All it remains for me to say is keep healthy and I look forward to seeing you on the 18th January.
