Suffolk RED – June 2017 (with video)

Wednesday the 21st of June 2017 was the 10th Suffolk RED event. For those not familiar with RED, it’s a county-wide get-together for amateurs, delivered in a similar way to the Essex Skills Night – A mix of show-and-tell, hands-on practicals, demonstrations and the chance to meet and socialise.
