Sussex Pioneers Craft Camp

The craft camp was attended by 42 Pioneers from Hove, Eastbourne, Steyning and Brighthelmstone, over June weekend at Peter's farm at Kingston near Lewes in East Sussex. This event has been going for a number of years now and is always a well attended event.
The Pioneers did metalwork, recycled masks, digital photography and bushcraft (making stuff with wood and knives - spinners, tent pegs, cars ...). They also made little fires to cook their sausages on for dinner on Saturday night (eaten with chips and baked beans), then they baked bananas with chocolate in the embers of their fires. Later in the evening there was a campfire with songs. It was a lovely relaxed weekend which everyone- Pioneers and adults, really enjoyed.

Peter was great, giving lifts in the tractor and trailer and generally being very helpful (think he enjoyed it to and commented what lovely children they all were.
