The highlight for last month has to be the club’s 25th anniversary celebration on 14th April. The event started at 10.00 when the Worshipful Mayor of Havant arrived with her consort.

The gallery table was spectacular and drew many appreciative comments from both our members and visitors. We had submissions by so many club members that the gallery had to overflow onto two additional tables. Well done all of you, the success of the club and it’s events is dependent on the support of us all.

If anyone has a project idea, a story to tell or an idea for an article, please get in touch. We would be really interested in publishing articles from any member. We will be happy to work with you on it, assisting with photographs, wording and layout as needed. For more information please use the ‘More Info.’ button below or talk to either Rick Smith or Dave Hutchings at any club meeting.

We would very much like to have your opinions on not only the last meeting but also past and future ones. We can use this to help us tailor the meetings to meet with our current and changing needs. Please speak to or email any committee member or use the feedback button at the bottom of this page.

The standard of workmanship in the pieces was exemplary and we as a club should be proud of the high standards that we are able to exhibit.
