IMG_5987New River Clean-up date

Date: Sunday 31st  May
Time: 10.15 for a 10.30 start
Where: Lion Health, Bradley Road, Stourbridge

If we are unlucky with the weather and the river is too deep to work we may go in for some Himalayan balsam bashing. I will not be able to contact you till the Friday or Saturday morning to confirm the final decision. Rosanne (rosanneadams@yahoo.co.uk)

You Tube film of river event

The You Tube film is now ready (I haven’t seen it yet) and it has been suggested that it is a link from a facebook page. My daughter Kat has offered to set this up for me and help with it but in the long term it would be great if one of our volunteers who enjoys computer work could dedicate some time to making this a really good page and to refresh it regularly. Would also need to be a good communicator! Please let me know if this might be for you!
Very many thanks to Ian Winstanley for giving time to do this for us and to Kat for offering to help with the facebook page.

The River Stour Booklet

A reprint of this is now at the printers and should be ready in about 10 days. This will sell at £3.95 of which £1.50 will go to Mary Stevens Hospice. 1000 copies gave us a good price with Direct to Print (who were excellent to work with and gave us a generous discount and recycled paper was the same price. If you have contacts with local historical societies, local shops etc who might be prepared to sell the booklets please let me know as we need to move them along quickly to recover expenses.

School visits

Rosanne has done a first school assembly showing clips from Message in the Waves and relating the plastic in the oceans (effect on mammals, animals and birds) to the River Stour. The children were lovely and several came up afterwards to share concerns about their own area. Thanks to Jean Cooper and Helen Lacey for making contact. Three more schools have shown interest and two are booked in for a talk.

So various things are moving along thanks to you all! It’s great the way so many contributions are made by so many in different ways.

All the best to everyone.
Rosanne
