CHILDREN made wooden animals as part of a workshop at Alver Valley Country Park, Lee-on-the-Solent.
The event was organised by Lee-on-the-Solent Residents’ Association to showcase some of the restoration work taking place in the park.
As part of the refurbishment, a meeting point bench will be carved out of a log, with wooden animals also carved into it.
The same carpenter who will create this bench was cutting up the wood at the workshop for the children to tun into these stunning creatures.
Richard Mackay, chairman of the association, said: ‘It was a great success and a nice way to celebrate what we have done so far and promote our work in the park to the community.
‘We had very pleasant weather for most of the day, apart from a bit of rain in the afternoon. But despite this, everyone waited patiently in the rain to get their wood carved.
‘I was surprised at just how good the models were.
‘I’ve already seen some of them in people’s garden throughout the town, all varnished and painted up. They look great.’
Most of the children were between four and 10 years old.
Refreshments were offered to people who attended the event.
