2020 AGM & welcome to the new committee!

It’s been a busy few weeks at WPA with the annual anagama coinciding with our AGM and the end of our membership year.

Thanks to everyone who came out and attended our AGM & mystery pot swap on 6 September!

It was great to farewell the outgoing committee, particularly Kate Ford who has stepped down from the secretary role after 9 years of service.  Thank you Kate!!

We also elected a new committee for the 2020-2021 year!  Unfortunately with all the activity we failed to get a group photo but welcome to the new members and hello again to those who have been re-elected.
