Wood Fair at Bentley Wildfowl and Motor Museum 26/28th September
The Sussex group as usual organised our presence at this, the biggest public event of the year.
All the usual suspects were waiting for Mike Gordon to finish what may now be a tradition at Bentley – eggs Benedict for Saturday breakfast.
Jill Swan (Syngate Wood Canterbury), was next to me all weekend, we had fun with rival trader banter.
She was doing a Tesco’s on the coat hooks doing a special offer dearer than my hooks – it worked, she outsold me. Apply for shares in Swan Woods Inc.
Mark Allery and the Sussex Coppice workers were in the forest. Like us, it was so busy it was difficult to find the time to have a good look round and chat to everyone. Only really said hello and bought some linseed oil.
Had a bit of a chat on Sunday morning before the crowds arrived.
