Established in February 1991, the High Peak Woodturners' club has met regularly since then on the first Friday of each month at 7.30 pm at the Civic Hall, Hazel Grove, SK7 4DF which is conveniently placed on the A6 (see map). Car parking is available. The meetings usually take the form of demonstrations of woodturning techniques by both professional turners and local members. ‘Hands-On’ evenings are popular, especially for novice turners, who can benefit from the experience of more expert members. Occasionally an auction or bring-and-buy sale of woodworking tools and equipment is held. A competition with a set theme is held each month, and during a coffee-break members are invited to judge the entries. Points are awarded to first, second and third places, and a club shield is presented to the overall winner for the year.
The club has its own newsletter, The Circular, which appears every other month. A recent edition can be viewed by clicking on the Newsletter button.
New permanent members are always welcome, as are occasional visitors, but a non-member is limited to two visits a year, a small fee being payable on each occasion.
