“It seems to me to be absolutely crucial to support and encourage all those remarkable craftsmen and craftswomen who help to make the country what it is.”
“Clearly the survival of these skills is an essential requirement for the future wellbeing of our communities, encouraging these crafts is something I care about enormously.”

We understand that he has followed our progress and we are delighted that he has agreed now to be our president.
