More about the club
Evening Club meetings are held on the last Wednesday of each month, apart from December, from 18:45 to 21:45 at the Methodist Church Hall, College Street, Burnham-on-sea, TA8 1AS.
Additionally, special whole day demonstrations by leading internationally recognised woodturners are arranged which attract members from other clubs around the South-West and Wales.
During the year George Foweraker holds several drop-in sessions for club members at his workshop to discuss wood turning problems and challenges including tool selection, usage and sharpening.

URGENT - Due to the Coronavirus pandemic and the fact that only minimal club meetings were possible in 2020, the committee has agreed that the club membership part of the annual subscriptions will be suspended for 2021. However, it is a condition of club membership that the AWGB portion of the annual membership must be paid as normal. The AWGB has declared a short period of grace past the 31st December 2020 deadline and therefore for club membership to continue it is vital that members make this payment ASAP. See reminder Email to all members from Ray Blake on 3 January 2021.
