The yurt went up!

Wow what a day, we arrived to find the wooden pole structure erected ready for us to apply the felt panels and so the 7 of us plus teacher from Medina school (Stephen) hoisted the roof panels on first followed by the side panels. It was so beautiful words fail me. Many community groups & other schools made panels and the whole thing is an incredible feat of creativity. Will post photos tomorrow all being well. A visit to Carrisbrook castle followed then a quick drive round part of the island.

 Just to end a perfect day when we arrived back in Brighton I found my passenger door window smashed, Ho Hum!

After a few hours sleep I’m up & ready for a trip to Isle of Wight to help erect a felt yurt, well what else is there to do on a Thursday??
