Meet at 18:00 for food, chat & social, meeting starts at 19:00, followed by friendly vibes & tunes

We eagerly anticipate the return of the legendary CANW AGM. Now that we’re just about on our feet again we can bring all the glitz & glamour of previous years plus a bit more! 

We’re kindly hosted by Sprint Mill again, which I think is the best possible venue for it. If you haven’t been before you’re in for a treat as it is probably the most interesting, old, quirky, friendly venue in the Lake District, yet easy to overlook if you don’t already know it. (Find it on Google Maps)

We’re wanting to make this an interactive & participatory experience as we really want our members to have more involvement in what we do & how we do it. This is your opportunity to have a discussion about how we can all work together to brighten the prospects for the woodland crafts & coppice industry for the benefit of each & every one of us. We also need your feedback as members as to what you want us to be doing on your behalf going forwards…

It will also be a great opportunity for networking & meeting other members, so if you’re new to CANW then this is definitely for you. If you’re an old hand then you’ll know how good these events have been in the past & won’t want to miss out.

  • There will be a raffle (please bring some relevant wood/craft/tool related items to donate to it!)
  • There will be a bring & buy coppice/craft tools & craft work sale (please bring some things to sell – you get all the cash!)
  • There will be a ‘Jacobs Join’ buffet (please bring some food & something to eat it off!)
  • There will be music (please bring an instrument so we can have a good old session!)
  • There will (hopefully) be a quiz (tbc still, but please bring a pencil anyway, just in case there is one!)
  • There will be friendly faces & good company (so please bring yourself along!)

We also need some help on the committee going forwards, so there are opportunities to really get involved, influence direction & help everyone do good stuff in the woods. Not huge onerous tasks, but if a few people do a little bit to help then we can achieve great things together…

Can’t wait to see you there!
