Hello to everyone that we met on the Children’s Countryside Day in Wooler on the 13th June 2012! We had a wonderful day talking to all the children and teachers, showing them shepherding artefacts and a short DVD presentation, and making felt ‘moustaches’, bracelets and hair bobbles. Some of you may have recognised your felt banners from school hanging up in the tent – they all looked great.
