The Friends of Robert Smails

I'm sorry that I didn't manage to post this before I went away last week.  A small group -Robin, Eric, Gen,  Debbie,  Ian, Tony, David & Carol - Rachel couldn't be there as she was on a course with the National Trust in Norfolk (more of that later hope) - met at the end of January to talk about establishing a Friends group for Robert Smail's.  The draft objectives of the proposed Group are:
(a)  preserve the status of Smail’s as a working letterpress printers, open to the public.
(b)  conserve and make accessible the property and its collections
(c)   promote and develop Smail’s as a centre of excellence for the craft of letterpress printing and the education thereon.  
Tony Niepold and Debbie Horne agreed to act as convenor and secretary until the Friends can be formally established.  The next task is to establish how much interest there is in a group like this.

If you would be interested in joining the Friends of Robert Smail's please add a comment to this post.
