The Writing Equipment Society communiqué Home >>


We have had several resignations from Council just recently unfortunately Maureen has resigned as President, Gerald has resigned as Chairman, Graham has resigned as Journal Editor and Martyn wants to resign as Treasurer as soon as we find a replacement for him.

On a more positive side we are looking to increase member benefits. These include:

1. Free entry to all pen shows organised by UK Pen Shows.

2. WES discount card offering at least a 10% discount from certain well known suppliers.

3. Special offers - see the latest Christmas offer from our corporate sponsor NICHE PENS

4. We’ve added another two DVDs to our range of knowledge DVDs which are offered to WES members at a 50% discount.


We have been informed by Robin Field of Yard-O-Led that he has found a large stock of YOL RED leads, now I know that these have been very hard to find in the wild so if you need any I should act fast. Contact Jeremy on for more information.

Jeremy Collingridge, WES Librarian, received an OBE (Officer of the Order of the British Empire) from H.M. The Queen at the Buckingham Palace Investiture on 7th November. The Citation was ‘Volunteering in Leicestershire’.


I am amazed at the lack of input/feedback from members. We need this input in order to make the Society a better organisation for us all. To try and get you motivated we are introducing online discussions called ‘Ask your Council’ this will allow you to have your say face to face almost, you can ask us questions, let us know your thoughts about the Society and how it’s working for you, you can make suggestions or complain. You will be sent a Communique a week or so before each scheduled event then you can let me know if you want to join in and help the Society improve.

I can be contacted on or on 01543 415603

Best wishes
