Little Stour Warrior BoatOur next event…

Date: Sunday 18th May, 10.15 for 10.30
Where:  The Stour bridge – Park at Bonded warehouse

The Mission

It is definitely a far more adventurous and challenging site than we have ever done before. The work is under the two bridges so light is a bit limited. Do you have a head torch?

  • Rod is asking a friend to provide an extra strong winch
  • Helen hopes to bring some buoyancy jackets
  • Rosanne plans some better waders will look into head torches

We Need

At least 8 confident and fairly robust people to go into the river and also two people to work the winch to pull the rubbish out. Then there are people needed to cart the rubbish a very short way for the Council to pick up.

The Boat

The ‘Little Stour Warrior’

  • The boat will have her new name painted on her and a new Save our Stour banner.
  • Rosanne will bring some pure Malvern Water to launch and name her with.
  • Geraldine would you do the honours here if you are coming?
  • Anyone who would like to support the launch would be most welcome!

Please Bring

If you intend to go into the river please bring

  • A strong stick. (this really is needed)
  • A head torch (if you have one)

And please let me Rosanne know (rosanneadams@yahoo.co.uk) if you will be able to come and where you think you might help, thanks.
