Gatherums open day in Louth

Gatherums
Gatherums

As part of the Wolds Words festival, the Gatherums and Springside Regeneration Group is holding a free history and craft open day on Sunday October 20, from 10am to 4pm.

They hope it will encourage people to find out more about the history of the site through guided walks around the Gatherums and by following a new history trail.

There will be a sandpit archaeological dig for children to explore.

There will be some mini-workshops with local craft practitioners – just turn up and have a go at willow-weaving with Susi Mulligan, spinning wool with Claire Weaver and Judith and Peter Penneck, felt-making with Nicki Jarvis and calligraphy with Chris Henderson from Lindsey Scribes.

Artist Mike Webster will also be on hand to demonstrate his watercolour techniques and document the events of the day.

Events will be happening throughout the day, in the Gatherums and Springside itself and also at the Salvation Army Hall, where hot drinks and biscuits will be available.

Everyone will be given a chance to find out more about the forthcoming physical improvements to the Aswell Hole and Horse Steps.

The open day is supported by a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund, as well as Lincolnshire County Council, East Lindsey District Council and Louth Town Council.
