We’re here for you!

Recently I have been reminded that our relatively ‘new’ blog can still be a confusing minefield for people.  At the risk of boring you all silly, I thought I would explain again how the blog works and how you can use it.  First, and foremost, it is designed with our members in mind and it is for that reason we migrated from our previous website format which included a blog, to primarily a blog format which includes website ‘pages’.  The blog was previously the most talked about, and popular, part of the website, but there was no provision for interaction.  The new blog format has the capacity for you to subscribe, but even if you are not a subscriber, you can leave a comment on a particular posting.  We felt the opportunity for members to interact was worth making the changes.

To subscribe to the blog you will need to select the ‘follow blog by email’ button on the right hand side of the Home page, and enter your email address.  Continue reading

You’re Invited!

Things at the Art Shed are progressing weekly, thanks to perseverance and hard work.  This week Steve Anderson and Ron Talbot hung the ‘trays’ that will hold the gallery lights for the exhibition area of the Shed.  Getting gallery lights will be a big achievement as it means CAAS can finally have its own exhibitions again.  We are planning a social evening next Friday 2 March to watch an art DVD on our lovely flat screen TV, so bring a plate or grab something at the supermarket after work and come along at 5.30 for a casual evening and to admire our shiny new shed!  We will be in touch with a reminder about this before next Friday.
