    Sam, Just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the talk on charcoal burning today. You really are great to listen to – calm, interesting and repeating things several times so that morons like me can catch up! Don’t suppose you would have time to write that up for The Gazette at some stage, would you?? All that history, all that hard work, and that fantastic, local end product – I am just so impressed. Have told the husband and he would love to hear it all so I’ll keep an eye out for the next demonstration. Best wishes, Rebecca.

    Rebecca, Thanks for getting in touch. Of course I’ll write up yesterdays demo, perhaps for the July Gazette? We will be doing more burns this summer and some will be public demonstrations – we will advertise here, on the NT website and we’ll let Petts Wood residents know. Thank. Sam.
