BRITAIN'S youngest blacksmiths have been called on to produce a sculpture for the British Ironwork Centre.

Ollie and Harvey Roberts, from Borras, made national headlines after they started a blacksmiths business after their learning of the trade was borne out of lockdown boredom.

Since then, the pair of 13-year-old cousins have been inundated with orders - and have been tasked by their local community council to produce sculptures.

One of these, a fish made out of dessert spoons, has gone on display in Acton Park lake, and the other will be unveiled at the Acton smithy this coming Tuesday.

The Leader: Ollie and Harvey Roberts with their fish design.

And now, they have been approached by the British Ironwork Centre in Oswestry to create a sculpture to go on display the museum - which is the biggest display of decorative metalwork in the UK.

Ollie and Harvey's O&H Metalwork's Facebook page said: "The ironwork museum in Oswestry want to host a piece of our work.

"They wanted our fish, but that's in the middle of the lake - so we are creating a dolphin, from spoons, for the ironworks to display.

"It will be about 5 foot, and created to look like it's jumping out of the sea - so anyone scrapping any spoons, any size, you know where to send them."

On Saturday, Ollie and Harvey were invited to the British Ironwork Centre to meet its founder, Clive Knowles, who "loves" their work.
