Covid-19 update, 23/07/2020: With discussions at committee level, with the booked presenters and considering the Governments guidelines, we have taken the decision to cancel the 2020 programme.
It has also been agreed by the committee that your SMCW subs will roll over to cover the 2021 season.
The AWGB, at this moment, have not agreed to do the same.
MAGNOX GRANT. 2019 / 2020
In 2019 we applied for a grant from Magnox, (Sizewell), to improve our visual and audio presentation of demonstrations to our members.
Our application was successful and MAGNOX gave us £950. This money was used to buy 2 pull down screens, a radio microphone for the presenter, a new projector and 2 new cameras.
This has made a significant improvement in our presentations judging by members feedback.
Many thanks to Magnox for the grant and their help in supporting small clubs like our own.

To obtain the discount place your order with Don, as he still has the club account, and you can get your 5% off. He can also arrange for the order to be delivered to your home address.
HEALTH AND SAFETY
For your information about health matters relating to the toxisity of wood, the HSE have published a document outlining the dangers and medical side effects when using wood. The document can be viewed at www.hse.gov.uk/pubns/wis30.pdf
Fractal woodburning is a process of applying high voltage electricity through treated wood. the figures produced are commonly called Lichtenberg figures or Fractal burns.
The AWGB have published their policy against the use of this technique, following a recent fatality in the UK.
The problem with Fractal or Lichtenberg pyrography is that it is dangerous, and there are no safety standards published for the process.
The AWGB recommend that this technique is NOT practised.
See AWGB website for more information.
