Christmas Decorations Workshop

The trees in the woodlands have been heavily laden with seeds, nuts and berries. There were enough to spare for yesterday’s Christmas Decorations Workshop without depriving the wildlife of food. Strong winds brought down a silver birch near the children’s play area in early December. It was clothed in ivy with berries. The birch twigs and the ivy would otherwise have been out of reach, but they added to the natural materials collected for the workshop. Fortunately the weather was less windy for the event, which was attended by more than 60 people of all ages. This popular event enables an appreciative crowd to share creative ideas. As Mark and Lorraine were taking their December break from serving refreshments, FoAM members did some baking and made hot drinks to feed and warm those practising their decoration making skills. Many appreciative comments were made for all the hard work in preparing for the event and looking forward to the same again next year.
