We are delighted to inform you that Tim Hoyle has agreed to become the new President of Huddersfield Textile Society. Tim, former MD at Bower Roebuck will be taking over at our AGM in April. We wish Tim all the best in the role as President and the society's future is once again in good hands.

I trust that this announcement finds you and your family safe and well. I am writing to further update you regarding the current position here at Huddersfield Textile Society and how it affects you, our members.
The committee have decided to defer the AGM to a time when normality is resumed. This means that all future events are postponed until further notice.
On a positive note I can confirm that once again, Huddersfield Textile Society will be supporting the University, by offering awards for the best students in five different textile and print categories. As usual the standard of work is to a high level.
Good luck to all on what will be a very difficult decisions for our judges!
