Guild Open Day – 27th December 2003. At the Guild Executive Committeee Meeting held yesterday evening in Stretton, the Master, Nick Thomsom, reported that the Open Day had been very successful with over £1200 being raised for the Guild BRF, not including the £200 plus which will be recovered through the ‘Gift Aiding’ of donations.
The Guild wishes to thank all those who attended from all over the country in support of this venture.
The Guild Master also wishes to thank all those members who helped out on the day, braving the near freezing weather and the showers and sleet, by acting as stewards – without them, we would not have been able to hold the event.
The meeting also thanked past Master, Peter Wilkinson, whose initiative this was, and also the incumbent Master, Nick Thomson, who ‘picked up the reins’ when Peter found himself unexpectedly admitted to hospital
