One of our wood carving students, Eric Breese, has just been presented by Sharon his tutor with a special cake for his 90th birthday. If you look closely at the photo, you will see clues to the tools and work Eric has been involved with on his courses, as well as a sugarpaste representation of a relief carving Eric that has become the stuff of Higham legend in that it depicted a dry stone wall in perspective!
Eric is wearing a clue as to what he got up to with his family to mark his four score years and ten – he only went climbing up the second highest mountain in the Dales – Ingleborough.
Eric is an inspiration to us all – and we wish him many happy returns. What a guy!
