We had lots of stall holders selling everything from jams and preserves to teddy bears, (including stalls raising money for charity). The Woodcraft Folk were back showing how to cook on an open fire and doing various crafts with the children. Our Beekeepers did an excellent display and were on hand to answer questions and Thames 21 did some pond and river dipping and showed us what was living there. And we had the usual tea, cakes, and BBQ plus lots of kids activities. It was an excellent day!
I just wanted to say a BIG thank you to everybody who helped make our Open Day last Sunday such a fantastic day, either by helping out/performing/talking to visitors or visiting us.
There were so many fantastic moments; from the North Wood Morris Men and Old Palace Clog dancing, admiring the handiwork of our face painter on the little faces running around, the home made cakes, cheap plants and much more. But my favourite moment was when Clive emptied a box of bees in front of their new hive. The audience gasped!
Here are a few more snaps – a video compilation is on YouTube.
