Tom Wedgbury, Dylan Bravery and Ian Moody led the way, assisted by Jordan Brown and Tom Blow, in constructing a cart for Winterslow Preschool. The purpose of the cart was to provide the preschool children with a means of transport for their entry into the procession element of this year’s village fair. The preschool children have been busy making items to decorate the cart and will dress up as butterflies, caterpillars and moths to fit with this year’s theme of endangered species.
For the first time this year the preschool children will not have to walk all the way in the procession which usually wears them out by the time they have arrived at the fair — their parents will be required to do the pushing and pulling!
Much of the construction from this enthusiastic bunch of boys took place in their lunch times and the boys gained a wealth of engineering experiences such as turning metal on a lathe and forging metal along with the challenges of measuring, cutting, drilling and fitting.
