Further details of this year's West Country Scythe Festival
here

Well worth going to - you'll learn a lot, whatever your level of skill and experience ! I certainly do, every year I go.

Book in advance. Camping on site.

Strongly recommended. Lots of Downsizery people, even if they're not members.

You'd also get to meet some Downsizers.
We had a bit of a DS mini-meet there on the Sunday at the Green Fair.

I'd like to come to any mini-meet that happens - Arvo won't be around though, just me and the kids.

One of the downsides of living in West Wales, rather than Somerset, is that it's a long way away so I'll probably miss it this year

Go on, go on, you know you want to. Come to the DS skillshare in Devon the weekend before as well.

I'm sure we'll be there. Perhaps not to learn to scythe, but to socialise

Last year's weather would be nice . . .

Just looked at the green fair website ... it's on the Sunday. I think I might try to persuade His Arvoness to come back early so we can all go - looks like it will be fun.

Emmac. if you come to the Scythe Festival we're only two miles away - come and have a look at the new Visions studio & workshop! Bring some images and I can run them through the laser photographic machinery for you to have a look at

Would be lovely to have a mini-meet and see folk again.
Added bonus [or not] = enter the heats of the scything competition (how far can you mow in 1 minute?)

I may be mowing in the northern UK team in the team mowing competition,. ( mINLY Scotland and Cumbria)

For lastminute joiners for the Scythe Fest itself 9tomorrow, Saturday) there are still places left so just turn up - starts at 10am.

Learn to set up your scythe, mow, peen and sharpen.

If I wake early enough, I 'll start the day mowing in Yummersetters new orchard.

We are planning on turning up some time just after 11. But it depends on everyone's state of health/grumpiness.
