We have just got back from our tour around Fred's place. This was a surprise birthday present for my Dad, whilst we'd all seen Fred on telly he was a real admirer and so he was chuffed with this as a present. The day itself was great, the place is full to brimming with all of his bits and bobs, the chimney he built and the mine shaft in his back garden are amazing. Alf was good enough to talk us through the experience, many laughs amongst genuine admiration for the craftsmanship and skill involved. This is an insight into a bygone time where a lot of the skills and knowledge are at risk of being lost forever. We listened to lots of funny stories about Fred and his shannagans.
We took our son along who at the age of 6 needed some distraction, Leon found some things for him to play with and he was happy to play around, better for slightly older children perhaps, having said that as most of it is outside as long as they are kept occupied they will be fine.
Thanks Leon for a great day, my Dad absolutely loved it. I hope you achieve everything you want to with the Heritage Centre and preserve for the future. Great work
