When we arrived we were met by the Vice-Chairman, 15 year old Kieran Parkes, who introduced us to the adult volunteers and the young people who were there practising various crafts.

Having started as the Forest of Bere Junior Woodturners they became the Crafty Turners in July 2010 and have now been meeting for 5 years.
