I was asked to make a seat to go around a tree at the Kent Showground in Detling. The tree itself was planted in remembrance of Steve Wright, in a lovely spot in Murrain Wood – the hub of the forest section at the Kent Show. Steve, amongst many other things, was on the Forestry Committee at the Showground.
I got to know Steve after he came on a few of my courses some years ago, and subsequently through the Coppice Group and his work – especially at Ranscombe. I think he’d approve of the spot for this tree and seat. A good place for a smoke and a think.
