HEREFORDSHIRE craftspeople were in the limelight this week when BBC One's Countryfile featured local heritage businesses.

The Woodee, a company based in Dorstone, was featured on the show as staff create fire pits and artisan tools using Herefordshire's sustainable materials.

Managing director Louise Wright was coined 'the Queen of collaboration' by the show's presenter Ellie Harrison when they focused on how the family business champions local craftspeople, heritage skills and sustainable materials.

She added The Woodee is also in the running for a Rural Oscar from The Countryside Alliance, which promotes rural issues.
