October meeting

4th October 2018

From the South London Branch Workshop

James Marten

This month’s meeting allows us to go back stage on the activities of our branch workshop.

The workshop, initially the inspiration of our Vice President Ron Rose is now managed by James Marten supported by John Faulkes, Mick Welch and Alan Westgate.

Currently there are evening Clock Repairing classes running three nights a week and a Clock Making Project one weekend a month. In addition, other ad-hoc activities are run during the year. Full details are published in the newsletter.

As I am writing this work is underway to expand the size of the workshop by taking over an adjacent room. With walls about a foot and a half thick of Victorian concrete this is no small task!

The workshop also houses our library of over 300 horological books. Our librarian Gary Thwaites will be on hand to tell you more.

See examples of work undertaken, and some presentations maybe, by members on the Clock Making Project and the Students if they are willing to undergo this grilling, and those attending the other courses.

You are promised a very practically oriented evening.
