Little Abington - March 2010

A 'Bushcrafters Of Cambridgeshire' meet.
Organised by myself and Badgeringtim, this was the Cambridgeshire Bushcrafters first ever meet at the Little Abington Scout site
A Video Introduction to the Bushcrafters Of Cambrigeshire site ____________________________________________________________ The Bushcrafters were located on Little Abington's Sycamore Field. But in the bushcraft tradition, we never used the field, prefering instead to hide in the surrounding woodland!
__________________________________________________ A Social Gathering The Communial area where all the action was undertaken. The Sycamore site was huge for our needs, but we all found we spent the time socialising together in the one spot. Great, because we all ended up getting to know each other very well, rather than hiden away doing our own thing!
