One of the great things about a particular countryside park near me is their enthusiasm for promoting local crafts and highlighting experts in different skills. I took part in a local radio show last year, where the regular presenter of our local radio station came to my usual walking group location and make an entire programme about the leisure facilities available, literally on our doorstep.
Although the lady was born locally and knew the venue well, she was absolutely amazed at how many different craft workshops are available on craft days, and how many schools send coach loads of students to take part in the natural history days and local historic craft exhibitions. I know of several ladies who have taken part in the knitting and crochet workshops, and they in turn enjoy using the crop of craft and hobby shops that have begun to appear in the local high streets. Fantastic fun!
