Report on our meeting 24-11-2022 A tribute to Cliff Sim.
Our meeting on Thursday 24th November was a tribute to our late treasurer Cliff Sim who died on the 5th September 2022. Cliff had been our treasurer for many years and was very well respected for everything that he did for the club. He was also very much involved with other clubs and organizations and treasurer to more than just our club. His death was very unexpected and he will be sadly missed not only by our club but also from the wider community.
The idea for the tribute came from one of our members John Ruickbie, he knew that Cliff had brought to our club some pieces of wood that came out of a Church that was being altered by the removal of some of the Church pews, the wood was all Pitch Pine and probably over a hundred years old, but perfectly useable material. It was decided that John was to organize 5 turners to man all our lathes and to use the wood Cliff brought in to make some items for Cliff’s family.
All the items made were made from the Pitch Pine Cliff brought in, and all were different, the 5 turners were John Ruickbie, David Ross, Dave Line, Julian Cox and myself,(Alec Mutch). All the turners agreed to let the family have all the items made as a thank you for Cliff’s involvement in our club. The pictures for this meeting were taken by Liam Comfort one of our junior members.
The evening went very well, the report from the members at the end of the meeting was very appreciative of the fact we did this tribute to Cliff and his family.
The meeting was well attended, our next meeting is on the 8th December, it’s the Christmas competition and also the grand Christmas raffle draw. This will be the last meeting for the year 2022.
