Are any of our members interested in learning the ancient craft of hedge-laying? There are three FREE lessons, with experienced teachers, at the Spinney Meadow in Little Bytham, starting this Sunday, November 17, from 10am–1pm (sorry about the very short notice) and there will be some more (3 or perhaps 4), also free, in the new year. While it would be good to get people to attend all of the sessions, that’s an unrealistic hope, so I’m pretty sure it will be OK to turn up to one or two now and a couple more in January/February. See Bythams Spinney’s Facebook page for more information, or if you don’t do/like Facebook, see their official Lincolnshire County Council website, or call Judith Smith on 07787 350488. Hope to see you there!
This beautiful etching is by Stanley Anderson RA (1884–1966), one of an extensive series that he did on traditional country crafts.
