Update

We were incredibly lucky last Sunday with the weather and cleaned the river in bright sunshine. It was good to see well known faces and some new ones too. The boat ferried the rubbish and the bit we cleared looked very much better. There’s still more to do in the same area.

Storage Space

We are still in urgent need of storage space for our equipment and boat. If anyone knows of someone who can help with a secure lock up or garage do please let me know.

River Stour booklet

We have the go ahead for reprinting Gerald Darby’s River Stour booklet. It’s on a Microsoft Publisher data stick. (help!) If anyone knows anything about this and can help – all expenses met- that would be a great help. Profits go to Mary Stevens Hospice. I hope to get this sorted very soon.

Graham Beckley’s River Stour Exhibition

This will be held in Himley Hall and will be up and running starting April and running through the summer. Will let you know dates when I have them. Photos of the full length of the River Stour to where it flows into the Severn at Stourport.

River Stour Sign

Photo and copy for this have not appeared this week in St. News. Hopefully next week!

With many thanks to everyone for all the help and support.
