An agricultural show like the Aylsham show is a great place to see farm animals. These two Hampshire Down sheep were in a pen together waiting to be shown. The sheep seemed to be really enjoying their day out.
Thank you Radio Suffolk for having me back to discuss how the project is going as we have reached halfway. Also the relevance as today is World suicide prevention day which they were discussing too.
Also an opportunity to draw another single farmer in a landscape to depict the solitude that so many farmer find on a daily basis. The scene could be anywhere in Suffolk or Norfolk.
Actions you can take if you are worried about someone:
Tell the person you are concerned
Listen in a non-judgemental way
Stay with them
Keep calm & supportive
Offer to help – call their GP, take them to A&E, ring @samaritans
So here I am exactly half way through this drawing challenge. Once windmills like Saxstead were numerous and a common sight milling grain for the local community but over time numbers decreased with the advent of steam.
Saxstead Green post mill is still currently being restored.
Whilst at Manor farm Hickling on our farm tour we came across David out in the meadows setting mole traps. An old countryman from West Suffolk. A lovely old chap and another unusual activity out in the farms.
Please see attached PV invitation for the Norwich print fair. The PV is tomorrow night (9th) at 6pm to 8:30. I hope to be there from about 6:45. Please do come.
The show runs until the 21st.
