SUMBA are looking for friends and neighbours, who might like to join them and some of their other volunteers, including members of the Crewe Clean Team, on one, of two Work Parties they are holding on Sunday, September 28.

Everyone would be very welcome.

Sunday September 28th. — Meet at Aqueduct Marina @ 10:30am
They will be finished by early/mid pm, but you are welcome to join them for any length of time that is convenient to you.
All paint, materials and personal protection equipment (PPE) is provided by CRT — but please wear suitable clothing & footwear.
Please bring any personal food, drinks and medication etc. — we are aiming to have a boat on site at Sykes Hollow for additional hot drinks etc.

The two work parties are:

1). From Nanneys Bridge 8 to Sykes Hollow Picnic Area. A litter pick and cutback of overhanging towpath vegetation with shears and loppers.
2). At Sykes Hollow Picnic Area. Repaint five picnic tables & BBQ stands, plus a cut back of vegetation.

In order that they can assess the overall numbers of people, please let Graham Russell know if you are interested in joining them on the 28th. for some canal side activity — or if he can provide any further information.

Graham Russell — 01270 522731

I don't know what you do in the morning, but my routine involves a check round the fields, clearing off any unwanted crows and rooks, and a bathe in Eel Brook. Well I tell himself its a bathe but really I'm looking for eels, they are said to be good for one's coat — its the slime apparently. Since I've lived here I've hunted for them diligently but with no...

It has felt like the longest summer ever already as I listen to the noise of the rain on our roof. The grass is still a dry shade of crunchy brown from the unbelievable Mediterranean weather conditions we have been having in this little corner of England. It is the hottest summer I can remember since I was a child, collecting water from stand pipes in the streets of Cardiff. Who could have...
