The first hands on night of the year bought a bigger turnout than the first with several people turning out to have a short lesson on using a router from Graham Ambrose after he had cured the bandsaw of its whining. Peter Jackson bought a small piece of timber on which to test Yorkshire grit and Hampshire sheen, all very multicultural. Cath began a petition to get some secondary glazing for the hall, so if you want more warmth make sure you ask to sign it next time you are there. Plans to improve the video set up for demonstrations were moved forward by Martin Dickinson and some copper piping. Make sure you are there next time to see the spectaculr (underwater?) screening.
