We still have the generally lighthearted AGM to go at the time of posting this, but Wow, what a fantastic year!
Our First Course was run in June nr Burford, instructor Richard Gray led the course along with David Butler and Nigel Chivers helping out, the weather was fantastic! Infact, the only complaint we had was that it was too warm.
Then we had a display at the Cotswolds Show at The Royal Agricultural University, A huge thanks goes to Austin Hind for organising everything for the show including getting us some stone.
The whole show had a great feel to it and we really enjoyed being there showing everyone about dry stone walling Thanks go to the helpers on the day as well, Pauline Roenisch, Stuart Mayling, Richard Gray, Ed Browne and Jon Fredrikson.
In september we held another beginners course nr Tetbury, 10 people on the course, and from no knowledge to the finished wall, what a great bit of wall!
Members Practice weekend
During the September course we ran a members practice and social weekend. It was really well attended with a dozen members turning up over the course of the weekend, some to build, some just for a chat. We will do it again next year, we promise.
