We had a successful Open Day at Hallr Wood on Saturday 19th September, kindly supported by an SCC Aggregates Levy grant. It was advertised in the Charlton’s Community News and all parish councillors and also our new local councillor Jimmy Zouche were invited. We were particulary pleased to see Tony Cooper who administers the Aggregates Levy fund.  More than 60 visitors attended and we thank them all for their interest.

There were opportunities to try out our spring pole lathe and shave horses, weave on a peg loom and spin on a spinning wheel. Lynda was busy spinning dog hair – at last a useful purpose has been identified for all that dog hair …. Some of the children made clay animal heads and many people  enjoyed the trail around the wood, not to mention the delicious home made cakes and teas. The afternoon cullminated in some lovely singing from some of the Avalonian Free State Choir.

Do look at the gallery for some photos of this event.
