Well we did it! The JDSE&P day which was scheduled for March 2020 and postponed twice finally took place yesterday. Thank you to everyone involved in the organisation, everyone who came and to our speaker Linda Scoles and our demonstrator Nick Grounds. You were all completely fabulous.
Nick has kindly given permission for us to post the photos of his designs
We also took the opportunity to thank everyone who stepped down from post at the Virtual AGM in November and present badges to those who came into office at that time. Visit the Gallery page of this website to see all the photos
