AT Milford House’s regular pottery sessions Alvin Betteridge helps the residents to create all sorts of wonderful things, but this week things were a little different.

Alvin brought in his potter’s wheel and demonstrated how he makes a variety of pots and bowls.

The residents were absolutely fascinated watching pots take shape before their eyes from what had been just a lump of clay seconds before.

In the hour Mr Betteridge ‘threw’ a dozen pots, which the residents will glaze next week and then use for the flower arrangements that they regularly make for their dining tables.
