Who can resist these cheerful fellows?
“The group is free to all. The group’s aims are to encourage knitting and crafting and bring the community together.”
David McPherson is a local rocking horse maker and restorer. He designs and makes traditional Victorian style, hand carved, wooden rocking horses in three sizes using the best of timbers.His horses are bought by fans from near and far, and no doubt become special friends to the lucky children who get to play with them.
“I have always loved working with wood and helping to keep an old craft alive gives added enjoyment. All horses are handmade, meaning no two are exactly alike, giving each it’s own individuality and character….”

David will be bringing an example of his beautiful horses to the Arts & Crafts Market on 13th December, and will be available to take orders on the day.
