The West Ashby-based Lincolnshire Wolds Woodturning Association has presented a cheque for £165 to LIVES.

The club nominates a charity to support every year and chose Horncastle based LIVES in 2014.

The money was raised at a raffle and club chairman Mick Close is pictured above presenting a cheque to Steve Hyde from LIVES.

As a charity, LIVES rely heavily on donations from individuals - and organisations like the Woodturning Association.

The Association is a small friendly club that meets at West Ashby Village Hall.

The main club night is held on the last Tuesday of each month where a professional wood turner gives a demonstration to provide new ideas and techniques. 

The action behind and above the lathe is also displayed on two large HD TVs while a PA system ensures the audience does not miss a thing.

On the second Tuesday of the month, the Association holds a ‘hands on’ night when newcomers can work on a lathe and get help and from more experienced members.

Annual membership fees are £15, Club nights cost £6 for members or £8 for guests (for up to 3 nights), hands on nights cost £3. Meetings are 7pm to 10pm. Refreshments are also available.

The club has facilities for members to purchase wood, project kits and there’s also a club shop selling a wide range of finishing products. More details from the website: www.lincswoldswoodturning.co.uk or 01526 343283.
