This has come from Will Johnson, Secretary to the society:--
As you may already know, the UKCPS runs a stand at the NEC each year in
the Art Materials Live show held in November. We have several people
demonstrating their Coloured Pencil skills, and we try to sell a few
items to make a bit of money for the society, including new memberships.
It is a great way to meet old friends and to make new ones. If you have
been before you will know we used to have a hands on area for people to
try out coloured pencils, however the organisers have asked us not to
run the participation section of the stand this year.
I am writing to ask if you could volunteer some of your time to
help. The show runs from Thursday 8th November to Sunday 11th November
from 9:30 until 5:30 (5:00 on Sunday). A free entry pass will be
available for all volunteers that enables entry not only to Art
Materials Live, but also to the sister shows “Crafts For Christmas “and
If you could see your way clear to helping, or think you might be able
to help, please let me know by emailling me at: email@example.com and I will let you
have more details.
