Free timber to Hawarden High School

If you’ve been reading our blog, or following us on social media, then you’re probably aware that for the last few months, we’ve been giving away our offcuts to local schools and colleges for use in woodworking class and hopefully to help the next generation of carpenters and joiners to get their first experience of working with timber.

The latest school to benefit from our offcuts of timber is Hawarden High School in Flintshire and here, thanks to David Owen and Mark Kenny, we get to see what they’ve made from the timber!
