Its been a while since I last posted a blog, so time for an update. A time hop note on FB has prompted me to share my work from last year.
This seems such a long time ago.
My last post was back in February after finishing some fencing panels, so I thought it would be a good idea to share some of the work I have completed in the mean time.
So what follows is a short video of highlights from the last 4 months
Cath Abbott at Cradle to grave has installed her hurdles
I have been supplying various people with materials for garden projects and education providers including Jonny Tidd at the Wild earth project for bow making, and made two ash handles for Yordan Borukov of Dorset herbs and essences
Scout camp Butchers coppice in May had me teaching fire making again.
Dudsbury Guide camps roundhouse needed some pretty major repairs, the volunteers had put a lot of work into the original structure on the site. It was decided that we would try to retain the walls of the original build. A self supporting roof has been constructed over these walls and is being thatched at present.
In May I delivered my last Forest schools session at Clayesmore as they have employed a new staff member who is forest school trained, this was always the plan from the start. I would like to thank all the staff at Clayesmore for a wonderful 5 years and for the support they have given me recently.
In the first week of June a group of us competed in the Blenheim Triathlon, unfortunately I didn’t beat my time from last year, but we managed to raise an impressive £11.000 for Bloodwise winning an award for the best group fundraising effort.
I have nearly completed an outdoor shelter at Carymoor environment centre and at the moment I am working on an outdoor oven.
