In a medical emergency, every minute counts in getting that vital first medical support to the patient as quickly as possible. Those first golden minutes can make all the difference to a patient’s life. That’s why Lincolnshire Lives 700+ volunteers give up their spare time to respond to 999 medical emergencies, in their communities, right across greater Lincolnshire. The responders’ actions save lives; they get there fast to deliver that vital immediate care to their neighbours in those critical first moments before handing over to the ambulance service.
Lincolnshire Lives believe in being there for the people of Lincolnshire in time of greatest need; delivering immediate high quality care regardless of the location or time of day. Our responders were there for 21,550 people each year across the county, that’s 60 people a day.
Lincolnshire Association of Woodturners are pleased to support Lincolnshire Lives. If you would like to make a donation or obtain more information please visit their website www.lives.org.uk
NEXT CLUB MEETING:
7.00pm for 7.30pm Tuesday 18th June 2019
Joey Richardson is an English artist known for her delicate wood forms. Born in Lincolnshire England, she grew up in the heart of Twigmoor Woods on a small farm. Here, the magnificent trees subliminally rooted within her a deep love for the woodland and she began turning and carving reclaimed local timber.
Nature and more specifically, wood, is the driving force in Joey’s sculptural practice. It informs her themes and guides her expressions. From memento mori through mimesis via a mischievous wit, her delicate wood forms and contemporary, mixed-media sculptures are moulded by and seek to encapsulate nature.
‘’It shapes me and in turn, I shape it’’.

Our next workshop night is:-
Tuesday 4th June 2019
7pm – 10pm
Please come and join us on the 4th June. In May we had six lathes in operation, so there was plenty of opportunities to have a go. Hopefully we will be able to offer the same in May so come along for a great night out away from the television.
Have a look at the past meetings page to see what we did last month.
The club shop will also be open, selling all those necessary accessories, together with some second-hand tools which we have acquired to sell on to members, at very competitive prices.
