The First Northumberland Firewood Fair… a great success

October 17, 2011

We had people travel to the event from as far away as Wiltshire and Liverpool to attend the North of England’s first event dedicated to firewood.  The auction itelf generated a lot of interest – plenty of buyers, and over 200 lots arrived on the day to give visitors a fantastic array of firewood to buy – from bags of kindling and logs through to dumpy bags of hard wood and softwood and kiln dried timber.  A few lots were sold which were still in the woods, with some real bargains for those with the space to store logs and those willing to sharpen their axes to do some processing. The trade stands were very busy – reporting excellent trade on the day from people genuinuely interested in firewood.

If you attended, please visit the firewood fair web site and give us your feedback – it’s really important that we find out how we can improve the event and if you think we should be doing anything differently in future years.

Thanks to all of the vendors, Glendale PR, Beach Design, Meldon Park, The Dyke Neuk, the trade stands and to the excellent team at northwoods who put together an excellent day in a very short window! We’re also very grateful to George F. White for their sponsorship and importantly to the funders… Northumberland Uplands Leader, defra and The European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development.
