Apologies to anyone who has recently received an email from our news mailing list, telling them they have been unsubscribed. Recent housekeeping to remove out of date email addresses from the news mailing list had inadvertently removed a few too many. Hopefully this has now been rectified.

Note that members can join the mailing list in the members only area or by sending their email address to the webteam.

Once again, we aplogise for any inconvenience caused.

Paul Slee and his wife presented this beautiful wooden carving to the Association at the 2017 Annual Dinner. Paul carved it by hand over a number of months using a picture of the Association's crest as his design. The accuracy of the carving and level of detail are absolutely incredible.
