Despite the weather deciding to throw us a last minute curveball, we still went ahead with the Festival, bringing it inside to the Smith Dorrien – a building which has been beautifully restored as part of the redevelopment of Aldershot.
Inside were a host of tables with activities that included face painting, woodland tree decorations, the Fleet Beekeepers, and Owl Pellet dissection.
There was also some tasty Nepalese food on offer to keep us going until the names of the children who had won the Community Competition were announced. Nick Speakman, our Chainsaw Carver, then unveiled the sculptures and talked about the work that had gone into making them.
All in all a good day, with many people turning up despite the change in venue. Keep an eye out in the Woodlands for the sculptures. There are a few up already. Have you seen them?
