This event will be held at Park Farm Wellington (just below the Monument) on the 3rd of July. A family day with the emphasis being every thing "woody", there will be chances to "have a go" at things like hurdle & basket making, green wood working, carving, bodging, tree surgery, furniture making, oak frame building, forest school, willow sculptures.

Other attractions will be guided woodland walks, steam and mobile saws, sustainable fuels, demonstrations on other aspects of woody things.

The day starts at 10am and there will be local food and drinks served all day, a local band and many other attractions.

Entry is £5 per car, the fair is non profit making and any profit will go to St John's Ambulance, it is being organized by the Blackdown & East Devon Woodland Association with the Working our Woodlands Project.

Supported by the Blackdown Hills AONB and the Neroche Scheme it is assured to be a good day out.
