New Living Willow Season

We worked at Bedford Modern School on Saturday. We helped 6th form students to design and create sculptures based on fruit and vegetables in the garden. There were some great sculptures made including a giant mushroom, an apple and an onion.
Today we were at Whale Hill Primary School, Eston nr Middlesborough. We had an introductory day with the children prior to making a large living willow maze. We took part in a special assembly to tell the children all about willow and how they can use their completed maze for both study and play. In the afternoon we marked out the maze in readiness for the children to do their digging and planting tasks next week.
Simone has decided to finally take the plunge and become a British citizen after nearly 30 years of being an American in Cumbria. This is much more complicated than we had thought and Simone has to take a 'Life in the UK' test! I can't answer many of the questions on the 'helpful' booklet supplied by HMSO. Many of the questions seem to be quite obscure. I was hoping that they would be along the lines of 'Why is Big Brother so Boring?, 'who is Dr Who?' etc.
