The all Part Parliamentary Manufacturing Group is an initiative of Vince Cable to highlight the great manufacturing that still goes on in the UK. Each MP is asked to recommend local manufacturers that we can be proud of.
I am delighted that my MP Andrew Bingham has recommended not only myself but fellow craft business Hill and Sons riddle and sieve-makers. Here we are on the official website
I get a picture of a bowl and spoon and bit of blurb
"Robin Wood turns wooden bowls on a foot powered lathe. The craft is
2000 years old and died out in 1958. Mr. Wood revived it and then
taught the skill to people in the UK, USA, Sweden and Japan. He has
supplied the Globe Theatre, Hampton Court Palace and the Tower of London
with his product. He also supplied props for the Ridley Scott film
Robin Hood as well as exporting all over the world."
here to see is your MP has done it yet and if s/he has not wizz them an email.
