OUR AGM was held on January 11. Approximately 35 members attended this meeting - when apart from the AGM itself, we had a buffet and were entertained by Matthew Sproston. He played the banjo in the style of the late George Formby, and we very much enjoyed both his music and his voice.

Our next club meeting will be held at the Offenham Village Hall on Wednesday, February 1, starting at 7.30pm. Our Demonstrator for the evening will be Susan Smithson and is entitled 'Through the Garden Arch'. Visitors are most welcome to attend. There is a small fee of £5 for the evening, though if you accompany a Club member there is no charge (February meeting only). Coffee/tea and biscuits provided".
