Welcome to West Northants Woodturners
This West Northants Woodturners website is updated regularly, after our meetings, so please do come back and see what’s new.
Better still, come along to one of our meetings (entry is free for the first couple of visits), meet the members and join in the activities.
There is more info about the club on the “About” page, including how to join.
West Northants Woodturners meet on the first and third Wednesday of each month.
Meetings start at 7pm with the demonstrator starting at 7.30pm. The evening will usually close at 9.30pm to allow for clean up.

The Next Club Meeting: Mick Hanbury – 18th July 2018. 

For this demonstration we welcome Mick Hanbury who is well known for his decorative finishes to his pieces and his beautiful finial boxes, elegant spiral stem goblets, and delicately patterned platters. Although we will not know until the demonstration what he will be doing he is sure to give us an entertaining evening.

General Data Protection Regulations Act (GDPR)

New data protection legislation came into force on 25th May 2018.

Anyone processing personal data must comply with eight enforceable principles set out in the GDPR Act.

Although club membership is a somewhat grey area it has been decided that we would work to comply with these requirements even though it may not be necessary. In order to comply with this legislation existing and new members are asked to confirm that they give permission to hold and use certain data. A more detailed letter and form was circulated at the last club meeting and will be available again as you register at the door of the next meeting on the 18th July 2018. Most members have now signed this form, however, for those that have not as yet we would ask that you read this and then if in agreement sign the form as confirmation please.

For Sale: we are continuing the clear-out of DML and Axi lathes, with club members being offered first refusal at reduced prices. Another reason to come along to the meeting!
If you can’t make it to the meeting, please take a look at our For Sale page; it will be updated as the club lathes become available or, indeed, with member’s private sales.
