Ladies belonging to the Women's Institute in the New Forest and ladies who had previously taken part in the Swap Shop tour (featured elsewhere in the "Taking Part") were given a tour around the National Motor Museum at Beaulieu.
Duly inspired by what they saw, the ladies then took part in a craft session in which they made their own car mascots.
Watch this short film to find out how they got on, or click on the 'Gallery'.
Which of the mascots would you have on your car?
