A cold bright day was made only better by being at the Compton Dando Craft Day in the warm, bright hall with both old and new faces and a few young people (22 in all) as this date coincided with half term. Molly enjoyed learning to spin the fleece from their family alpacas; Gilly took to felting like a duck to water and made a stunning flower; a couple of people brought their spinning wheels for an overhaul and a professional diagnosis from Jenny Smart. Homemade bread, soup (Carrot and Leek and Potato equally popular today) and cake made by Harriette Dottridge, the organiser, were enjoyed by all. Harriette reports that a profit of £20 was made for the Compton Dando Community Association and most importantly everyone really enjoyed the day.
