Rural Crafts this Saturday

Thursday, July 26th 2012

Preparations began this morning for the Rural Crafts Day on Saturday.  Some of the exhibitors came along to plan their stalls and demonstrations.  The Rural Crafts Day celebrates the diversity and skills of traditional countryside crafts; demonstrations and activities will be running throughout the day from 10am - 3pm.  Stalls will include, an Artisan Blacksmith, Pottery, Pole Lathe Turning, and the Beacon Bakery, amongst many others.  All of these will be based around the Field Centre so pop along to have a look around!

David came to help out with some jobs around the reserve, spending much of the day repairing wire on boardwalks and cutting back overgrown vegetation on the paths.  These are all looking really smart now and are much easier to walk along without getting wet!
