CHAIRMAN’S NOTES 
As members will know Cavendish DFAS is a registered charity. One of our objects in the Constitution and Rules is "To arrange related activities of an educational character for children". Through our Young Arts Coordinator Jan Hardy, assisted by Sue Eyre we have in recent years funded a professional artist to teach in small primary schools in rural Derbyshire leading to a number of successful exhibitions of the children’s work, some of it of a very high standard. We have now moved on to a new project funding visits by groups of GCSE Art pupils to art galleries which they would not otherwise be likely to get to see. We have also funded visits to an Arts Centre where the children get "hands on" instruction relating to the work produced there, including jewellery, textiles and ceramics. The Gift Aiding of members subscriptions is crucial to our Young Arts projects as the tax rebate we receive is used to fund them.

Visits and Study Days play an important role in the Society. I am pleased to report that Jennie Ball and Michele Bicket have joined the Committee as Acting Assistant Visits Secretary and Acting Study Day Secretary respectively, with a view to their being formally proposed for those posts at the next Annual General Meeting. Jennie will be taking over from Liz Wake and Michele will be taking up the Study Day post which is currently vacant.

The talented photographer among our membership, who we need to help us with Church Recording, has still not come forward! I would be very grateful if you would contact me.

I wish you all a happy and healthy New Year and look forward to welcoming you to our January lecture "The Normans – Conquest and Legacy". As part of the lecture we are promised an account of "disgusting details of William the Conqueror’s funeral". I am most intrigued!

PETER STUBBS
