Birtley House Bramley, Nr Guildford GU5 0LB 

                                                  First ever meeting of the Surrey group 14-09-14




Mervyn Mewis has been busy making a woodland workshop area in this beautiful setting in Surrey.

The land owners the Whalley family are keen to promote local events and activities. They have a part time ranger Theo who was doing a good job supervising a children’s event not to far away.







 


The Hazell family were in attendance and as usual Martin had some great spoons and a very pretty basket.

I did not know that he used to teach basket making.








 


There were a few new faces, which is always very encouraging at the birth of any new group.
Mervyn I think knows how to use available  human resources.








This looks good already – what great potential this setting has. If you are local and wish to develop your personal skills then come and support your new local group.


Mervyn has plans to run monthly weekend courses in chairmaking and is interested in encouraging others to use the resources; possibly painting workshops.




The next meeting will be the Surrey Hills Wood Fair which is on the weekend 4/5 October at Birtley House (http://www.surreyhills.org/events/surrey-hills-wood-fair-2014/)
