I suspect that this apology will only be read by myself so here goes!
I had a look at the Shed website a few days ago and realized (do you like the American spelling?) that there had been nothing done with it from the end of 2021.
So, I guess that I need to take more seriously the training of people to do things like making sure that the Events area is kept up to date and that some sort of news appears here.
Having said that what is the news?
COVID We discussed this briefly at our initial Management Committee meeting for 2022 and decided that Merv and I would look at what we had decided at the beginning of the crisis and whether it was still "fit for purpose". Phil Sharp managed to find the original "Covid-Safe" plan - thanks! - and Merv and I will suggest to the next meeting that it really needs little change. The important things are "Do Not come to the Shed if you are sick or are a recent close contact" , "Leave your time of arrival and departure" and "Wear a Mask unless you are eating or drinking". Otherwise anyone is able to visit.
Woodwork Shed. The grant to allow completion of the work on the woodwork area is largely spent and the structure is nearly completed. The last contracted work will give us a dust extraction system. Meanwhile Graham and Ted and others have carried forward the internal sheeting and storage installation. It is looking good.
Music The Ukulele and other musical activities continue with due attention to masks and ventilation. All the members who take part are vaccinated and seem to benefit from the socialisation.
Management Committee The Committee was formed without a Secretary at the AGM. This is a vital role for the shed and is particularly discussed in the shed Constitution. Steve Chakalakis has bravely agreed to undertake the role and i have offered to act as Assistant Secretary. Steve is still also organising Sausage Sizzles, so he will be busy! Help him if you can.
