      Hi Nicole,

      We spoke on the phone and the project is on our list. I am hoping someone will be in contact once the weather improves. We just need to look at the project and size.

    Hi Marc, my 13 year old son is struggling at school with the basics, except WOODWORK and METAL WORK in which he excels in. Is there an ability for him to spend some time “working” with experienced people on a Saturday?

    • Marc July 4, 2019 at 11:01 am

      That should be ok, he would need to join as a junior member at $42.50 pa. If you pop along on Saturday I can show you both around and we can discuss what you think.

      Kind regards
      Marc Dimmick
