Countryside – Events for local communities in Fryerning

Pictures from two of our recent events for local communities in Fryerning, Essex:

  • A team of volunteers preparing for their community ‘In Bloom’ competition
  • A group organised by local Young Farmers

In both, you can see Jim, our Master Hedgelayer, explaining the history of the craft and techniques, displaying his very traditional toolkit, and then coaching volunteers to ‘have a go’ for themselves

Always well received and helping us all to ensure that these crafts continue to live on.

Jim is taking on another apprentice this winter in the hope of transferring his skills to another young enthusiast.
