Report on our training evening 28-07-2022.

Our latest training evening was on Thursday 28th July 2022, there were due to be 4 tutors along with 4 pupils, however one of the pupils failed to turn up leaving one of the tutors with nothing to do, there was some doubt about one of the pupils before the session started because he had indicated he might be late, we did give him the benefit of some time to turn up if he indeed was only going to be late, but he was a no show!

Report on our training evening 14-07-2022.

Our latest training evening was on Thursday 14th July 2022, there were to be 4 pupils and 4 tutors, however one of the pupils had to cancel and one of the tutors came down with Covid, this still left 3 and 3 and it was too late to organise any replacement pupils or tutors. We decided to go with what we have, the 3 tutors arrived as arranged but only 2 of the pupils turned up, John Ruickbie’s pupil failed to turn up, that left us with Errol Levings tutoring Liam Comfort, and me (Alec Mutch) tutoring Gareth Jones.

However the situation with Covid reduced this to only 2 people doing the presentations, Errol and myself.

Our meeting on the 23rd June 2022 was another Showtime meeting, organised by David Hobson and compered by myself, we had entries from 12 members and a total of over 30 individual items shown.
