A Short Break in Farnham Part 3 – “Another Brick in the Wall”

The town of Farnham is known as a Craft Town and is very active in the creative arts. The town is also very active in relation to conservation and climate change. There is so much going on! My brother Graham is involved in many ways in both these spheres.

When staying for a short break with him and his wife, Vicky, we had the honour of attending the unveiling of a special piece of community based craftwork.

Any resident of the town could collect an unfired brick to personalise by carving, adding texture or patterns or anything that takes their fancy.

These were then returned and fired ready to be added to a beautifully curvaceous wall as a piece of public art.

Nearby were other signs of the creativity of Farnham people, a beautiful garden bench in the park area where the wall is situated and even the council trucks looked smart.

A retired primary school head teacher, I now spend much of my time gardening in our quarter acre plot in rural Shropshire south of Shrewsbury. I share my garden with Jude my wife a newly retired teacher , eight assorted chickens and a plethora of wildlife. Jude does all the heavy work as I have a damaged spine and right leg. We also garden on an allotment nearby. We are interested in all things related to gardens, green issues and wildlife.

Well thank you for this lovely record which I have passed on to some of my World Craft Town committee colleagues.

What a beautiful, physical monument, to all the things that abide in the individuals and the community, as well as those who just pass through the ‘community’? Absolutely love the
wall’ being built from beauty – and not ‘just another brick in the wall’ (cuz ya know, I am aware of Pink Floyd lyrics – – LOL)
