Great fun at Great Fen

December 15, 2014

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.
