Rural Craft Award
The Melplash Agricultural Society is launching a new competition for Rural Crafts. The competition will be open to craftsmen and women living within a twelve mile radius of Melplash Church and who derive their livelihood or a greater part of it from their craft. Entrants will be judged in the summer months working on site or in the workshop. Pictured is Guy Gale thatching the ridge of Rose Cottage, Netherbury with Ian Hobday his assistant.
