I've recently joined this group of green wood enthusiasts and am attending the Bodgers ball on the 6th, 7th and 8th of May at Brockhampton Estate - Lower Brockhampton about 10 miles East of Leominster.

Anyone else on here going?

They've just published edited video footage of the proceedings: http://www.bodgers.org.uk/component/content/article/90 it's about 12 mins long but it gives a good idea of the "crafty" side of what green woodworkers do.
