A Message from the Committee

Greetings from us all on the WECS Committee and we hope you and your families are staying as well as you can in these difficult times. We hope you enjoy Wardrobe and we would be glad to receive any contributions for our future editions, whether they be book reviews, tips and thoughts on making do and mending, previous museum trips, or even quizzes.

We were so sorry to have to postpone the Game’s Afoot event on 21st March; however, as things turned out it was the right thing to do. Thanks to your Treasurer, and assuming that the present restrictions on events will be lifted, we have managed to negotiate a re-book of the venue (Gloucester Cricket Club) for 20th March 2021 at no extra cost, and two of the speakers have already kindly agreed to pencil in the date.

If you booked for the day, and have not yet notified us about your refund/rebook options, please contact Sarah at treasurer@wofecostumesociety.org.uk.

Plans for our October Study Day are already in place, and at our Christmas meeting Connie Gray, of the Gray Gallery in Bath, will talk to us about fashion illustration 1930-70. This will take place at a new venue for us, the Bath and County Club.

We are already working on ideas for next year’s events, and will let you know as soon as we can what we have in store for you.

Finally, we would like to set on record our great thanks to Jean Scott, who has retired from the Committee (but not as a member!) after 15 years as Chairman, Secretary and general person-to-go-to for WECS. We owe her a great deal. We should also note our gratitude to Tony Cooper, who has retired as Chairman after six years of successfully refereeing Committee meetings, and has agreed to stay with us as Secretary and Webmaster.

Thank you all for your support to WECS - and we hope to see you again in the autumn. In the meantime, do check our website and Facebook pages for more news from us.

With every good wish,

Angela and the Committee
