Bedfordshire

One of those times when the day was saved by Pete’s amazing ability to absorb and recall facts and my slightly compulsive tendency to hoard craft supplies.

The day began with a brainstorming of what we could come up with of interest to do with Bedfordshire.  Having discounted planes as we had focused on them recently, I was at the stage of planning how we could build a model airship when Pete came out with Luton FC are called the Hatters!

A quick Google search discovered that according to Wikipedia “The hat making industry began in the 17th century and became synonymous with the town. By the 18th century the industry dominated the town. Hats are still produced in the town but on a much smaller scale”.  Since this was the last Geography group of term what else could we do but Easter bonnets 🙂
