Simon Saggers
Hedge Laying & Hurdle Making
Rural Craft
Spring | 2007

Simon’s QEST scholarship enabled him to complete courses to develop his hedge laying and hurdle making to complement his ‘summer’ smallholding and horticultural skills. He enrolled at the Writtle College in Chelmsford, Essex where he obtained a chainsaw certification, as well as a hurdle making course at Hadlow College in Hadlow, Kent, which were fundamental for him in developing his hedge laying skills, as well as learning to making hazel hurdles. His scholarship additionally enabled him to partake in a 3-week workshop with RJC Countryside Management wherein he gained ‘on the job’ hedge laying instruction.
