Yesterday, I went over to Padiham again. It was the last meeting of the “year” so we celebrated by having a “Show and Tell”. Joan the secretary began the event, showing inspiration from her city and guilds days.
I was really impressed that every member had brought along something to show and was happy to stand up and discuss their work. It made a very good mini exhibition and we can always learn from our colleagues.
Mona the chairman completed our event, telling us about the highs and lows of bookbinding.
Finally having already been refreshed by tea or coffee , we were treated to strawberries and vanilla cream, by members of the committee.
We meet again in September for the AGM and and some other activity,yet to be confirmed. Members from Bolton (or in fact any other branch member who might be reading this} can join Padiham as well as their home branch. Fees to HQ are already covered by local membership so only the Padiham fee is needed.Padiham meets on the first Monday of the month , from 2.00 till 4.00.It takes me about 1/2 hour to get there and we have a large, free car park. As a new branch we would appreciate all support.
