Please join us for the Celebration of Cranes event on Saturday 22nd November at the Willows and Wetlands Visitor Centre in Stoke St Gregory to mark the fifth anniversary of an inspiring project that aims to reintroduce Cranes to the Somerset Levels.
An iconic bird, the crane has been featured in art throughout the centuries and yet has been missing from our landscape for the past 400 years – until now, surely that is worthy of a celebration?
Working collaboratively with The Great Crane Project, Somerset Art Works has been delivering creative workshops within the community; raising awareness and connecting people to this ambitious conservation project that is taking place right on their doorstep. This Autumn primary school pupils from Stoke St Gregory and North Curry schools have been creatively engrossed in constructing dragonflies and headdresses, whilst Heathfield School have made some striking theatrical costumes.
The procession starts at 4.30pm. Admission is free and the afternoon promises many attractions for all ages to share and enjoy as the part of the annual Christmas Craft & Food Fayre which runs from 2 – 5.30pm.
