Dabblers can stay put!!!!

Morning Ladies,

Just thought I would let you know that there WILL BE a secret santa this Friday as enough people have replied to make this possible.

For those that went to the last meeting I told you about a letter that we had received from the Church Committee. They told us that they needed to put
the room rate up to so that we were in line with all the other groups that use the facilities. I explained that if this was the case that we would
have to look for other facilities as this increase would probably be out of reach for some of our members, pensions, those on benefits etc. etc.I I received a letter yesterday and
here is a part of it

Quote

'I have discussed your difficulties with members of the church and we would like your group to keep
going at the old rate. It is part of our mission to
reach out to the community and support them'.

Unquote

YEAH I am so pleased that I fought our case and didnt just agree to the price rise. St. Martins does have the facilities we need and are used to
(hot in Summer, chilly in Winter and poor lighting at times) but I am sure that you will agree....it does feel that home to the dabblers.

However, why is there always a however or a but, I will have to sign a contract for a year. Therefore I hope that you will all agree that to cover the months where
there may not be so many of us we will need to have a bit of a kitty. Instead of working out the price each evening I nominate that we have a fixed fee of £3.00 per
night, which is only £1.00 per hour. £3.00 is still great value for money... a night out socialising with other like minded crafters, occasional demonstrations, picking
up lots of tips, refreshments and friendships.

I would greatly appreciate it if you could let me know your thoughts on the fixed price per evening.

Looking forward to seeing you on Friday

Tracey
