Join in fun at fes­ti­val

Avon Valley Gazette - - NEWS -

THE Fes­ti­val of For­got­ten Skills is on again next week­end in Glen For­rest.

Glen For­rest Com­mu­nity Gar­den mem­ber Jenny Cur­rell said last year’s in­au­gu­ral event, or­gan­ised in con­junc­tion with Mun­dar­ing in Tran­si­tion, at­tracted a large crowd.

“This is a fab­u­lous op­por­tu­nity for peo­ple to at­tend free work­shops on ev­ery­thing from fruit tree prun­ing and scyth­ing to gar­den tool main­te­nance,” she said.

“See how to use knots and lash­ings to cre­ate struc- tures to use in your gar­den: per­haps a bean trel­lis or tomato tee- pee.

“Adults and chil­dren can also try their hand at mo­saics, cro­chet­ing and more.

“There will be a clothes share, book share, food and plant share al­low­ing peo­ple to bring items or find a trea­sure to take away.”

Ms Cur­rell said the pub­lic could try their hand at old- fash­ioned games, in­clud­ing mar­bles, elas­tics and skip­ping.

“The af­ter­noon will fin­ish off with mak­ing, cook­ing and shar­ing pizza cooked on site in the pizza oven,” she said.

“We are ask­ing at­ten­dees to bring top­pings to share and a tray to cook on.”

The fes­ti­val has a theme of ‘ no money, no power, no waste’. It will not use elec­tric­ity and is funded en­tirely by shar­ing and dona­tions.

All ac­tiv­i­ties will be free and run by vol­un­teers.

The Oc­to­ber 7 Fes­ti­val of For­got­ten Skills is at the com­mu­nity gar­den, cor­ner of Hardey Road and Glen For­rest Drive, from 2pm.
