“I’ve enjoyed learning about the birds and the alpacas and what can be done with their fleece. It’s good for people to see what goes on and learn about the wildlife on the doorstep. My son Daniel is quite keen on astronomy and we spent some time at that display.” Merefest 2017 attracts thousands of visitors – with pictures and video | Shropshire Star
