A Master Thatcher shares all

We had an excellent start to 2018 when our first speaker, David Wood, shared with us how he followed through a childhood interest with a 7 year apprenticeship to become a Master Thatcher, illustrating his fascinating talk with the tools of his trade, a dovecote & a portable roof section! We also launched our new website and started arranging refunds following the unfortunate cancellation of our Christmas social evening due to the heavy snow.

The snow was beautiful!

It was a shame to finish such a good year for our club with the cancellation of our Christmas social evening but the conditions were treacherous & we couldn’t risk any injuries to our members! Here are some photos that give an idea of how beautiful it was, plus one of the lovely table decorations that 2 of our committee members had prepared.
