Message from the Chair
This year has certainly been challenging for us all. The majority of craft events had to be cancelled and we were not able to organise any as Weald Crafts.
I hope that as we see the introduction of a vaccine that we will be able to return to some sort of normality next year. Below are details of the events that we hope to be able to run, although they remain subject to whatever restrictions may be in force at the time. In the early part of the year we may have to adapt and adjust the way that we attend the events and the committee will keep you informed of our proposals when they are known.
It is possible that we may need to hold our Annual General Meeting which is planned for Thursday 25th February in a different way or with a restricted attendance. Once we have clarification I will let you know. As a result we will not this year be handing out booking forms at the AGM but will be emailing to members immediately after the AGM. Again, more details when known.
In the meantime may I wish all members and their families best wishes for Christmas and the New Year. Hope to see you all in 2021.
The following events are scheduled for next year, subject to confirmation and any government restrictions:-
16th to 18th April Firle Garden Show
15th and 16th May Firle Country Show and Horse Trials
12 & 13th June The Stade Hall, Hastings
21st & 22nd August Tractorfest, Biddenden
17th to 19th September Bentley Wood Fair
2nd October Crowborough Craft Fair
13th & 14th November Llama Park Christmas Fair
19th & 20th November Cooden Beach Hotel
5th & 12th December Blackbrooks Garden Centre, Sedlescombe
Other events are being considered and details will be provided if confirmed
The committee has agreed that due to the cancellation of the entire 2020 programme it was only fair that the subscription that was paid for 2020 will be carried forward and cover 2021 as well. At the moment we hope that all current members will wish to continue their membership. You will have received a renewal form for 2021 which we need all members to complete and return as soon as possible. This will enable us to update our records. This form also includes your two £5 vouchers to use at 2021 events.
If any member does not wish to continue their membership of Weald Crafts please will you kindly inform the Membership Secretary in order that your details can be removed from our records.
