Post Covid-19 newsletter

We are opening again!

The Committee has decided the Guild’s clubrooms will open on Wednesday, 3rd June 2020  with some new rules for you all to follow. And thereafter the normal Saturday, Monday and Wednesday hours will follow.

The rules are  as follows:

All members must fill in the sign-in form and sign the special COVID-19 form. The sign-in form is in the usual place and the COVID-19 form will be located in the dining room area on the main desk. Members must fill in these forms and adhere to the following:
¨  We must maintain social distancing of 2.0m where possible.
¨  We must ensure that all members sign in for contact tracing.
¨  We must provide hand sanitizer, paper towels and rubbish bins lined with plastic bags for easy disposal of paper towels.
¨  We must spray switches at start of day - by that I mean light switches and tool switches. 
¨  If a member is sick they must stay home or away from the clubrooms.
We recommend that  members  provide their own masks and gloves and the choice on whether you wear them or not, is yours.
A lot of our members are in the ‘at risk’ age group or have an underlying health issue  so we must all follow the rules.

Lunches—use of kitchen

All members are to bring and  wash their own utensils - the  preference  is  to  take them home for washing. Milk  can be supplied and shared if so desired by the members or you can bring their own.

Dining Room—layout 

Members will need to maintain social distancing at the tables.

Annual General meeting;

As per the last newsletter the AGM will take place on the first Wednesday in July - this is 1 July 2020 at 7.30pm at the Clubrooms.
Nomination forms have been sent out on a previous newsletter -  please decide what you can do to help  run the Woodworkers Guild. 


It has been decided that we will cancel Edenview this year  but will look at next year.

Funding opportunities

Please get your thinking caps on for any  ides that may assist the club with funding for the coming year. We do sell firewood and timber and have toys for sale but let us all think what else can we do for funding. No idea is a silly idea and all ideas are welcome.


  The  subscription shall remain at $60.00 again for the coming year. The committee was of a mind to increase the subscription to $70.00 per member per year  due to the ongoing costs of maintaining our building but given any subscription  discussion needs to be discussed at a general meeting there is no opportunity to discuss this under the current situation. 

Fairy Doors

It seems so long ago that we had a competition to make fairy doors for the Council’s Parks department.They required 11 fairy doors and we all made 17  - so they will have spares.The winner with his very  fancy red door fairy door was 
David Wiseman.
Congratulations and well done David!

Roof replacement

I have instructed Tim Yeo Contracting to replace the 2 rooves and the internal gutters. Other quotes are on hold due to lack of funds - these are the fitting of external spoutings and  fitting of plastic spouting. Timeframe is some time in June / July / August.


Subs are due as per the last newsletter - please ensure you fill out the application form in full.
