Everyone was busy working hard to complete their carvings in time for the auction. Here are some photos of Sunday morning.
The auction took place at 3pm and raised just over £3000. The profit from the auction will be donated to the Priory Trust.
There were three prizes of £150 in tool vouchers generously donated by Steven Travis of Stone Working Tools and these were voted for by The Priory Trust who chose Mike Gardner’s Hipno Ram, The stonemasons who chose James Wheeler’s Hippy Hippo and Steven Travis who chose Ollie Annaly’s Walrus and seal pup.
Here are the photos of the finished carvings.
