Edition 1     LATE SUMMER / AUTUMN 2019

Welcome to the first seasonal newsletter to update the membership on past, present and future happenings within the society. We broke for our summer recess from lectures in June but not before a great trip to Scampston ……see the report on our newly updated website pages at  

September 3rd sees the Autumn season of lectures begin. Find details on our Website EVENTS section. Come and join us and maybe bring a friend. We are always keen to encourage new members and visitors …. 

October EVENTS are a Day of Special Interest on Chatsworth and an Outing to Durham and Crook Hall which can now be booked online, by mail or at the next lecture. This month also sees the Membership Renewal process for 2020 begin so don’t forget your cheque book and watch the website for online renewal options …….bank details to be supplied with your September mailing.

The November meeting launches with our AGM – you will be able to read the Annual Reports in advance and learn all about what we have been up to. December brings Christmas …..less thunderstorms, perhaps the snow!

Under Website NEWS you can see reports and pictures of the Birmingham Tour, the Rural Arts Sponsorship, and Sculpt, The Art in Churches project. There is still time to visit Sculpt ………late September!

Finally, it has been mooted that we may host an Information Event perhaps with a Pop Up Lecture for members, friends and the general public to come and see how the society functions. We do rely on volunteer help in addition to our committee.  Why not email for my attention should you be interested in finding a role, offering a skill or just having something to say …. If you know of any members who are not internet connected please pass the word – there are only 21 of them and other mail options will still work for official mailings.

***We believe that our website pages are an invaluable tool for us to disseminate information, enable members to book events and share experiences, as well as offering volunteering opportunities. We are about to offer the renewal of your Membership or booking Events online! This way we hope to attract new members who can see the diversity of our activities. Please suggest viewing it to friends and other potential members. As we become more established, we intend to ask for feedback. If you see any howlers, please email: for my attention!         

As part of The Arts Society main website the format is fixed which does have a few limitations and quirks.  Find us by googling “Arts Society Hambleton” or type address  and save this to your Favourites.

Please note - the only way to return to our HOME page from EVENTS or NEWS is to use the BACK button on your browser.
