Gallery: Woodcarver of Woolmer Green remembered at village fete
GLORIOUS sunshine provided the perfect backdrop for an annual village day, this year honouring a famous woodcarver.
The 2010 Woolmer Green Village Day, held on Saturday last week, saw temperatures hit 28C, and attracted one of its largest ever crowds, while at the same time remembering Harry Macdonald.
A plaque was unveiled to commemorate the man, known to many as the woodcarver of Woolmer Green, nearly 40 years after his death.
Current woodcarvers were on hand at Woolmer Green Village Hall to display their skills, and films of Harry in action, owned by Mill Green Museum, were shown.
The event also included a barbecue, children’s rides and stalls.
