Denman Report 2019

Firstly, it is good to report that our bedroom at Denman is now completely refurbished, thanks to the support of you, our members, and a private donation for the bed.

Unfortunately, there has been a 10% drop in members attending courses plus a 3% drop in Federation visits. In order to sustain Denman, the management team is now looking at corporate events and private functions to run along side courses. This has proved very financially successful during the past year with several already booked for the coming year. This has meant some changes, especially in the bedrooms, which now have a more corporate look.

We had an excellent Federation visit in 2019, plus several members attending courses and day visits. Plans are being made for a Federation Visit to celebrate our Centenary in 2021.

As an organisation we are so lucky to own Denman, where we can learn new skills with like-minded people, eat well and relax in the beautiful Oxfordshire countryside. If you have never been, can I encourage you to pay a visit or make a return visit? I am sure you will find a warm welcome.
