Newsletter January February 2022

10 Jan 2022


Unfortunately the infection rate of Covid variants is currently very high, which means that we have taken the decision to hold our January and February lectures on Zoom and will not be meeting in person. I do hope you can join us, they both promise to be really interesting subjects. 

Our 20th January 2022,  lecture is 

Barbara Hepworth. The Stones and The Sea: The Influences of Cornwall and Yorkshire, By Elizabeth Strang 

This look at the life of Barbara Hepworth (1903-1975) starts with her childhood in Yorkshire and her attachment to its landscape. Her work was further influenced by the land and sea when she settled in Cornwall later in her life. The inspiration she received from nature, together with her work ethic, resulted in her wonderful works in stone, wood and bronze.


To join the lecture on Zoom, please click on the following link on Thursday 20 January at 13.30

 Thursday17th February 2022, David Wright, a wine retailer, importer and distributor for 30 years, will present his talk, A Brief Story of Wine, a great subject, and full of rich evidence, going back 7,000 years, in the form of paintings, decorated drinking vessels,  buildings and literature that contribute to the story.

The link to join the February lecture is the same as the link for the January lecture, but this will be emailed to members a few days before the lecture

Membership subscriptions for 2022 are due in January. 

The Subscription fee  will be £50 per head or £95 for two people living at the same address.

Renewal forms have been sent out to all existing members at the beginning of January, and a reminder will be sent out  later in the month.  

Our 2022 AGM will be held at the start of the meeting on 17th March 2022.  There will be some vacancies on our committee as several of us have completed our 3 year term of office or more and would like to retire if we can find replacements. If you would like to know more about the role of the committee and are able to help in any way then please speak to a member of the committee or get in touch with me, or 01732 810227.


I hope you all had a happy Christmas and were able to socialise safely with family friends.  The Committee and I would like to thank you all for your continued friendship and hope that medical experts who inform us that the pandemic is retreating are correct.  It would be so good to have regular monthly meetings again, in person, in the hall,  without worrying about getting some new strain of virus. 

I would like to wish you all a very healthy, happy and peaceful new year.  

My very best wishes,  

Roz .  01732 810227
