A big thank you to everyone who took part in our Woodland Archery and Ancient Crafts at Pevensey Food and Wine Festival.  Over 400 children (and some adults!) fletched their own arrows, carved Stone Age pendants, embossed leather bracelets and made pewter rings.  Photos can now be found on our Facebook page.

'Very hands on.  Very age appropriate.  Great variety of activities...Best workshop we've had!'

whole day.  Children who wouldn't normally participate
