AGM and Fun Day

Saturday 28th November, 2009

We do hope you will come along to this year's Annual General Meeting of the BADFA South and West Yorkshire Group at the Smithy Moor Community Centre in Stocksbridge. You will be able to renew your membership for 2010 at 9.30a.m. (It is still £8.00. )

We actually bought large cream baubles in January for us to use at the Fun Day (how is that for forward planning). We are sorting out a lovely design and this will be on the blog. The painting is due to start at 10a.m. The cost for the day will be £8.00.

As usual we are having our normal communal lunch, where we ask everyone to bring food to share.
The AGM will commence after lunch.

Please let Debbie know if you are able to come, and also let her know what food you will be bringing.

Phone: 0192 438 2886 or email

If you have any questions which you want raised under "Any other Business" please advise Hazel prior to the meeting.


As most of you know in the past we have had two social events at Christmas—a Monday Christmas Party, where we had a present lucky dip tub, and a Monday and Group evening Christmas Dinner at the Wagon and Horses, Langsett .

We are having a change this year and combining the two with a Monday Painting and Group Christmas Lunch at Ye Olde Mustard Pot , Midhopestones on Tuesday 8th December at a cost of £17.50.per head.

We do hope you will come to the lunch, please reserve your place with Debbie Walkington on 01924 382886.
The last Monday painting for the year will be on Monday 23rd November
