June Newsletter supplement

Kidzone is on again this year at James Hargest Senior College in Layard Street from 10th to 15th July.

Volunteers are still required for our woodwork room.   This is a worthwhile event and a fund raiser for the Guild.

So please put your name down to volunteer - it does appear as though the same old faces are turning up and with less volunteers these members are doing more time than they should have to.

So help your fellow members out and volunteer to help and remember this is the major fund raiser for the Guild.

Let Simon know when you can assist.

There are spaces available for volunteers on the following days:

Wednesday 10th July
Friday the 11th July
Sunday the 14th July
Monday the 15th July

The box toys and false floors for the boxes have all been manufactured and packaged up ready for delivery to the wood work room at the college.

My thanks to all the members who volunteered their time , a great effort  to get these cut and packaged.

REMINDERS to all members


The General Meeting is being held on Wednesday 3rd July at 7.30pm at the Clubrooms.

Refer to last newsletter for definition of patron and I look forward to your discussion on the subject.

We have changed our Club day from Monday night to Saturday, this is because of the cold dark nights we are now getting and with the Saturday we should encourage those members that work all week to come along and make some wood shavings for themselves.

I would encourage all members to come along and make whatever they want to.

The Guild has great facilities, good space, good machinery and even good comradeship and banter
to keep us on our toes.


Things are looking good, thanks to all those that have been so busy sorting and storing the wood.  The sooner this task is completed and those involved can get back to doing something for themselves the better.

I do believe that in the future those type of tasks should be done as a working bee type of operation rather than having a few spending all their time working on these tasks.

It seems some of our equipment has gone on holiday during my absence so if you know where the jigs are for setting the knives on the big thicknesser please ask them to come home.

If you think you may not be able to identify them, they look a bit like long bolts with funny bits of metal at each end. They used to live with the spare thicknesser knives but went walkabout when the knives went to the new tool store.

It must be holiday time for some of the spare light bulbs that were in the cupboard near the old chiller room and it seems they have taken the cupboard with then so if you see them please ask them to come home.

The cost to return or replace these items is in excess of $200 and shows that thigs should be returned as soon as possible. 

Otherwise all is looking good and looking forward to seeing more members doing their own thing. 

ps.     it's holiday time for me too but sorry no lightbulbs here or jigs.  Cheers to all..   Peter A.
