Environment Agency

I had a talk with Julia Morris of the Environment Agency this week and she emphasised how important it is for people to report pollution, smelly or discoloured outfalls, etc to the emergency number of the Environment Agency
0800 807060.

She described how one report caught several misconnections from new houses which were polluting the river.

Boat

Little Stour Warrior

Little Stour Warrior

Rod has finished working on the boat and she is now stored behind Wayne’s garage. She will be named Little Stour Warrior. We are now planning her official launch and naming and when this will take place. Hopefully we will be able to make a good event out of this.

Photo competition and next year’s calendar

Laurie has very kindly designed and had printed A4 and A3 posters for the competition if you are able to distribute any of these to others who would reliably get them put up in churches, community spaces, shops, schools, colleges and any other useful space please let Rosanne know.

I will bring some to the next event, but would appreciate addresses to send them to if you won’t be coming and could help with this. I can also send it by email if you could print it yourself. Many thanks that would really be a very great help.
