This month's topic will be The Sussex Trug. Sarah Page has lived in Herstmonceux, for the past 22 years.
When she learned that trugs had been made in her house since 1899 she decided it was important to
gather as much history about the craft as she could before it was lost and the stories about the business
forgotten. She will be talking about how and why the trug developed in Sussex, what they were used for
and how they are made. She will be bringing with her examples of different kinds of trugs, and also the
tools used to make them. Some trugs will be available for sale. As Sarah says, the Truggery, still going
strong, is living history.
