Corona Virus Update

11 August, 2020

Corona Virus and HWA – update April 2021

Although the UK has come out of national lockdown and the current situation regards COVID 19 is improving, the current Government guidance means that we are still not able to meet.

We are aware of the intended COVID roadmap and the relaxation of some of the rules and we are in contact with out venue regards re-opening times but at the moment no dates have been agreed to meet up.

As a result, the suspension of meetings will continue until further notice.

Our remote programme will continue via demonstrations using the Zoom platform, some shared with other clubs in the region. These have proved very successful and have allowed us to see turners from other parts of the world rather than just those on our doorstep. To maintain some continuity, the Secretary has tried to arrange these on the evenings when we would have been meeting at the Railway Institute. We will let you know as and when more such demos are scheduled.

We will also continue to show galleries of members’ work each month with occasional Challenge topics and voting via the website. Your Turn is still being produced quarterly as well as interim monthly reports.

Pete Broadbent

Chairman, HWA

    Hi, I have tried to contact your group using the email link, but it is rejecting my email as spam.

    I wonder if you have any members who have experience of turning spinning wheel bobbins, and could put me in touch with them.

    I have recently acquired a spinning wheel, which only has one bobbin. So there is a ‘template’ to copy.

    Ideally, I would like to be able to deliver the bobbin and then do a pick-up, rather than post it.

    I fully appreciate that we are in lockdown, and that is not possible at the moment, but am planning for the future.
