Due to the current outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID-19), the Board has decided that in the best interests, as well as the health and safety of all members, that all activities (that is, workshop, board and club meetings, as well as sales) will be closed from mid-day of Monday 23rd March 2020 until further notice.
The board discussed the situation as at the end of April and based on current State/Federal suggestions and looking to keep our members as safe as we can, we will not be opening this month and will re-assess at the end of the May.
The board has discussed the current coronavirus pandemic and the impact upon the Central Coast Wood Turners club and has agreed that the workshop will remain closed until a clear indication is given that it is safe to re-open. In the meantime there will volunteer members who will maintain all equipment on a regular basis so that everything is prepared when the club does re-open.
Sales of all products have been cancelled until at least the end of 2020, if not longer. Individual members may still attend markets if they so desire, however, the club will not be responsible for any fees or expenses incurred nor will the club receive any commissions from sales.
There will be strict guidelines on numbers and requirements for attendees, with CCWT Good News Opening Soon. It will be necessary to implement a rotation system for attendance and more information will be supplied at a later date. Due to reduced numbers sessions will be modified to Monday, Friday, Saturday. The most current information regarding requirements and session times can be found by clicking on this link.
We have a well equipped workshop that is located at The Old Milk Factory, 141 Alison Road, Wyong and is open to members on Friday, Saturday and Monday mornings. A range of woodworking merchandise and library facilities are available. There is a dedicated group of enthusiasts who provide training to help develop skills with wood turning and craft areas as required. The Central Coast Woodturners comprise members who have a passion for working with wood. The club comprises a group of volunteers who generously provide their time, skills and expertise to help promote the various aspects provided by Central Coast Woodturners. A key feature of CCWT is the friendly and supportive atmosphere where all members are encouraged to participate and produce wonderful pieces made from wood. Club details are included in the Community Directory websites of both Gosford and Wyong Shires. The club organises demonstrations, displays and sales at various shopping centres and events such as the Orchid Festival, Australia Day celebrations, Mardi Gras and the Sydney Working with Wood Show.
