The first Wednesday in September is always the Muker Show. We took along the 'Church about the Dale' trailer and set up for a very busy day of coffee and conversation.
Staffed by people from the Anglican, URC, and Methodist churches in Swaledale we advertised our forthcoming events, offered some 'Forest Church' activities with giant dominos and connect four on offer for anyone passing by.
Visitors from near and far stopped by for a chat and links built between people.
The show finished with hymn singing outside the 'Farmer's Arms' to the music of the Muker Silver Band.

Our pictures show the concentration required when weaving a fish from willow and wool; the trailer in all it's colourful presence and finally an illustration of how to make sure your humans sit nicely whilst you wait for food.
