Members of the RPT at Yandles

The RPT was very well represented at Yandle’s spring show by Mark Sanger, Steve Giles, Rodney Page and brothers Chris and George Foweraker. The sunny weather helped by bringing many people out for an enjoyable visit. Not only did our professionals stand out through the quality of their work they were all using safety screens to protect members of the public from flying chippings.

This years Craft Meeting and AGM was held at Skinners Hall in London on the 28th March 2017.

Much progress has been made by the committee over the last 12 months and their efforts, under the guiding hand of Chairman, John Boyne-Aitken, was appreciated by all.

The afternoon concluded with a brief outline of the new website and then we retired to The Bell public house.
