Norwegian Log’s Nick Forrester will be joining a panel of experts giving their advice to smallholders at a special event at this month’s Royal Welsh Spring Festival.

Organised by Country Smallholding magazine, the Speakers Corner event will see specialists talking about everything from polytunnel growing, bee keeping and shear-less sheep through to how to get started and go on to make an income from your land itself.

Nick will be taking the stage in the Smallholder Centre (South Glamorgan Exhibition Hall) at 2pm on Saturday 19 May to answer questions about planning. He will give practical tips on applying for planning permission and talk about real-life examples of how Norwegian Log has helped smallholders live on their land.

Other speakers include broadcaster and bee expert Jez Rose, author and Organic Farming magazine editor Sally Morgan, journalist Kim Stoddart and self-sufficiency enthusiasts Tim and Dot Tyne.

The Royal Welsh Spring Festival takes place at the Builth Wells showground on the weekend of the 19th and 20th May. A popular day out for many smallholders, it features an action-packed programme of more than 1,300 livestock and horses on display, a smallholder centre, hundreds of trade stands, children’s activities and an extensive food and drink quarter.

It's warm and it's cosy; it's solid and it's quiet. The fragrance of pine reminds you of Scandinavian forests and summer evenings. Your imagination starts to take you places. You imagine a wood burner, perhaps a desk or why not just some space to think?

Our show home is 29 years old, yet customers still say it looks and feels brand new. That's the quality of our workmanship and the materials. When you step into a Norwegian Log building you're stepping into a feeling and just like our buildings it's one that will last.
