We have really enjoyed visiting the National Stone Centre ever since we moved to Derbyshire over 20 years ago. Over this period of time we have seen things develop and have joined in with a number of activities at the centre.
It doesn’t seem possible that it is already a week since we had to take down all the lovely woolly things in Belper Parks Wood. They had been in the woods for the Woollen Woods 2015. When you are busy time passes quickly!

Yarn Bombing, yarn storming, knit graffiti is an activity that has really taken off in the last few years. It involves placing knitted, crocheted or felted items on railings, lampposts, trees, fences, bike stands and park benches. These items are left for the enjoyment of all who walk past them and they often disappear to find new homes where they continue to give pleasure. One of the most famous in this country has been achieved in Saltburn on the pier, details can be found here.
I have recently visited Foremark Reservoir in Derbyshire for the first time. The day we went was rather dull, windy and cloudy but we still had a good time. Foremark Reservoir is in the area of the National Forest. The forest covers 200 squares miles in the middle of the country and aims to eventually link the two ancient forests of Charnwood and Needwood.
