Avery Historical Museum

We are arranging a trip to Avery Historical Museum in Smethwick to see The Titanic Odyssey exhibition. Several thousand visitors have attended already so they have extended it till the end of June, so it must be popular.

Some members may remember Andrew Lound who did the Titanic at the club, he runs the exhibition.

The date will be Wednesday 27th June, and the cost is £4.00 each.

If you are interested in going can you let us know (via social secretary) ASAP as we have to book our places.

Regards Roy and Margaret.

Season’s End

Well it’s been another successful year for Cannock PS, the committee would like to thank everyone for making it a great year, we will be meeting again on the 6th September with the guest speaker Patricia Jones.

Don’t forget the practical group still goes on and there are 3 meetings in the close season, find the details on the ‘whats on‘ page.

Of course the PAGB Championships are on the 14th July and that should prove to be a great day out, the results will be posted here, and a newsletter emailed out, fingers crossed!

We will keep updating the news here with any personal successes members have in the close season, so if you get acceptances or awards don’t forget to let the webmaster know about them.

Have a good summer and see you in September!

Well done this years club winners!

A big congratulations to this years monthly competition winners.
