Members all enjoyed a lovely day at the British Iron works near Oswestry. On arrival they had a short talk about birds of prey and were able to get close to a baby Golden Eagle. The grounds were filled with amazing iron replicas of wild animals, including a huge gorilla made out of spoons! They also got a preview of the "knife angel", made from weapons handed in at police stations, which they hope will go on display in Trafalgar Square
An outing to the British Ironworks Centre on Thursday 21st July, has been arranged.There
are free demonstrations by blacksmith, silversmith, fabric painters, and falconry,
