William David Manson

Blackburn 11 December 2021

At long last after 2 years due to the pandemic we were able to meet at Foxfield Country Hotel and hold our AGM and 20th Anniversary Party.  Those who arrived on the Friday night enjoyed dinner and as usual we had a theme which was G and S Operas several members dressed up.

All told 26 members were present for the AGM and enjoyed a festive lunch.  This was followed by a Quiz based on the last 20 years, both national and NPS events.

William D Manson , who had designed and made our 20th Anniversary Weight, spoke about his new venture into Paperweight making after a long absence but the passion was still there with everything that his father Willie Manson had taught him many many years ago.   This weight is limited and only available to NPS members.  We wish him success in his new venture.

There were 4 members present who were at the first meeting 20th years ago.
