The various study days and workshops this year were a success and included the following - beekeeping, astronomy, singing, sugar craft, furniture restoration, drawing classes, photography and wildlife. Many, if not all, of the above classes will return next year. It is always important to also introduce new subjects and speakers. For next year we have secured a study day on City of London Churches from a highly knowledgeable speaker - Tony Tucker. The popular annual study day this year from William Tyler was his last as he has now moved to the south coast and the very time consuming round trip for one day precludes the continuation of his visits to Copped Hall. We remain most grateful to William for his long history of study days for Copped Hall and wish him well for the future.
