A lot of fire welding and forging. First pic left to right David Harman Rhys Harlin Blacksmith Richard Hillam, Eric Lamprell and Me. Welsh team did brilliantly on Wednesday and the Belgium team (who were up against us yesterday were also fantastic with their secret weapon… forging supremo Terry Clark (unveiled half way through)… who would have thought that Tel was from the land of Victor Horta, mayonnaise on chips and Rene Magritte? But in all seriousness congratulations to everyone so far…. team competitions are not for the faint hearted.
