South West Branch News July 2015
The members of the South West Branch gathered together for their AGM on Sunday 5th July. This was held in our usual venue in the village hall at West Buckland near Wellington in Somerset (just off junction 26 of the M5).
Despite several of our regular members being unable to attend on this occasion, we still had a large group who managed to come. We began with informal chatting over coffee and some had brought recent work to show. Those who wanted some advice on their progress were able to discuss what they were doing with others. It was particularly good to see two new people who both joined the Branch on the day.
At the AGM Rob Page and Sue Burne were unanimously re-elected as Treasurer and Secretary. We still don’t have an official Chairman of the Branch but Rob and Sue share the duties.
Much of our AGM was spent discussing our next Branch exhibition which will be in Spring 2016 at Durlston Country Park near Swanage in Dorset. The gallery there with its panoramic view of the sea looks a wonderful venue for exhibiting glass.
After all the formal part of the day was over we had a “bring and share” lunch which was splendid!
The next Branch work day will be at the end of September (probably Sunday 27th) but details have yet to be finalised.
The Branch is growing and has recently gained several new members. Everyone is welcome to attend our work days.
All are welcome to attend our next workshop day and if you would like more information please contact me on Burnecrafts@aol.com
