Wood Fair

Wood Fair

 Following the success of last years Wood Fair, run for one day only adjacent to the visitor centre, this years event was bigger and better. A weekend show run in conjunction with Woodland Crafts Ltd, and supported by the Forestry Commission and the South Downs National Park Authority.

 Among the attractions were the Hampshire Coppice Craftsmen, tree surgeons, furniture makers and horse loggers. Despite the serious intent to showcase the South Downs timber industry in all its forms there was still a committment to family fun, with activities, good food, and free entry for all those under 16.
