Mid Summer Medley

Lee demonstrating the pole lathe
The Trust team had a good day out on Sunday attending the Mullion Mid Summer Medley. Alongside up to date photos and information on what the Trust is up to locally at the Lizard and Penrose, we also had a range of activities and demonstrations for the whole family.

Children enjoyed making some colourful peg friends as well as changing the legs and beak of the Cough to make all kinds of strange looking birds. Tom and Lee gave some excellent 'bodging' demonstrations of how pole lathes and shave horses were used in traditional green working and both adults and children enjoyed having a go at it themselves. If you are interested in learning more about 'bodging' we have a 'bodging for beginners' day this Sunday (3rd July) at Poltesco so book yourself on and come and have a go.

The Medley was a great day out for everyone with plenty going on throughout the afternoon and we all enjoyed being a part of it. Look out for us at St Martin Mad Fest from 12 - 3pm.
