0016 Draycott Dynamite

1917, Star Wars and James Bond.  Just a few of the feature films Charlie Adcock and his team at Event Horizon have worked on.

From an early age Charlie wanted to blow things up!  Inspired by the gift of a tiny amount of Potassium Nitrate, his  life passion began, making explosives bend to his will.  Currently he has workshops in Somerset and Cornwall.  Life is rarely still these days for Charlie.

After squeezing past a BL 755 cluster bomb in Charlies hallway, Tiggi arrived in the safety of his kitchen. She finds out all about the early years, firing giant fireworks from Cheddar Church, and his most spectacular explosions to date!

015 Draycott Strawberries and Cream

This time I chat to Seagers, who are strawberry growers providing some of the highest quality fruit in Draycott.

Father and son combo, Andrew and Chris, talk about :-

  • their strawberries
  • the use of bees for pollination
  • the ups and downs of farming life.

Most importantly they tell me what community means to them.

I am also astounded by the revelation that they once had a surprise visitor to the village – but not in human form!

014 Draycott Willow Artist

Willow is synonymous with the Somerset levels and Draycott Moor.

Sophie Courtiour is by definition a willow artist, but Tiggi finds out she is so much more.

A single mother who built her own eco home, surviving artic weather living in a tent during the build. Having no art training but needing an income, Sophie made hurdles in hazel, which lead to willow.

This is a story of courage, love and hidden talent.
