YOUNGSTERS tried their hand at the age-old craft of woodturning at a Weston club’s meeting last week.

The Weston Woodturning Circle met at Weston Football Club in Winterstoke Road on May 17 and allowed some young would-be members the opportunity to have a go at creating some wooden crafts using a lathe.

Among the items created by members were bowls and tables.

Group member John Hepworth said: “There was a very good attendance, we were very pleased with how the event worked out and we’re hopeful we have some new members.”
