I am a little more optimistic, as I recently asked members to start paying their AWGB subs, I expected to be well down on numbers as some members think as there is no club, there is no AWGB! I have now got just over half what I collected last year when we were willing to turn out on afrpsty night for club night. i aalso have had more communication with members, phone or email and some great pictures, mainly due to asking for the subs!

Cheer up, many members ask when we will reopen and this takes the form of will we be open for Xmas/Easter /next year?

I wish I could say!

I think it’s supposed to be “Frosty Night”, but we’ll see what the OP says!  ;D

That is the night when all timber is free and you get given a new bowl gouge if you take enough of the timber away... but nobody knows when or where it is  :)
