Hazel, willow, beef and storytelling from Bedfordshire

Great fun at Great Fen

Making willow balls at Great FenIt was great to be back at Great Fen, near Ramsey in Cambridgeshire, last weekend. We’ve done a series of training days for the wildlife Trust there and they’ve all been very enjoyable. This time, we were teaching a group of lovely people to make willow balls. The first time we had run this particular day and we were a bit nervous about how it would go.

In the end, it was very good. As I suspected, there was a middle period during which most participants experienced a feeling that the whole thing was impossible. I still feel this every time I make a ball after years of doing it, so it’s to their credit that everyone got through this and got to the end of the session having achieved something worthwhile and I think, having had an enjoyable day.

So thanks to all of you who took part and to Alistair for inviting us over there. Perhaps see you again soon.
