Bushcraft Day

Over the weekend we spent a wonderfully sunny day in the woods.

First job when we arrived was lighting our campfire so we could start cooking lunch. Fresh Bread, Jacket Potatoes and sausages, yummy.

 The bread on a stick was very popular

The afternoon was far to warm to stay sitting round a fire, but the shade of the woods was a lovely place to be, especially with the rope swing.

Pioneer Tile Painting

After several sessions of bushcraft the pioneers have produced some wonderful spreaders, forks and spoons, photos of those to follow.

However it was time for a change so after playing some games out in the sun the challenge this week was to decorate some ceramic times and what wonderful designs they came up with.

Fun at the festival, part 2

It wasn't a promising start as we put the stall up in the rain but despite the forecast that was the only rain we saw.

We got the opportunity to display the banner the Pioneers made last year, as well as the bunting form Spring Camp.

It was a quiet morning but by the afternoon the festival was quite busy and quite a few badges were made. As always there were some lovely designs.

There was also lots of interest in the group, and hopefully we'll have some new faces at the taster evening next week.

Thanks to Bradley Stoke radio with whom I did a brief interview on the day, and have been publicising the event for us this week.

Fun at the Festival, part one

Great fun at the Start of the Bradley Stoke community festival this morning as we joined the Friends of Jubilee Green for a picnic in the park, have a look here for pictures of the day

Giant Kerplunk and the Parachute were both very popular, though the second session of the patrachute games was a little quiet. You can't compete with picnics :-)

Hopefully the weather will hold out for the main event tomorrow, lucky dip is all ready. I just need to cut out soem more blanks for the badge making.
