Trips planned

All appointed officers remained in their posts to complete their two year appointments but the post of programme secretary for 2013 remains unfilled.

Mrs Ellen Cooper announced her retirement from her post as raffle co-ordinator, a position she has held, with Mrs Jill Towns, for many years.

The chairman thanked her for her years of service and contribution to the club.

Mrs Towns will now be assisted by Mrs Debbie Beecher who volunteered her services.

Programme secretaries Mrs Janet Oliver and Mrs Linda Morley have organised a varied programme of demonstrations, workshops and trips for 2012, beginning with the March meeting, a demonstration by Kate Riley entitled ‘Designs for now’.

The club’s September meeting is a visit to Chatsworth House on Saturday September 22 and includes entry to the house, gardens and a demonstration by national demonstrator Jonathan Moseley.

Transport has been arranged and the total cost for the trip is £27. All members and non-members welcome. To book contact Linda Morley on 01427 872906, full payment to be received by March 31.

The next meeting is on Monday March 12 at 7.30pm at the Stephen Jones Community Hall.
