Update

In the pipeline:

  • With the help of Dave Wesson from Dudley Council it appears that we shall have a place to store our equipment in Lye. He is making it secure and hopefully we’ll be able to move all the equipment – and the boat into their new home soon.
  • After a meeting with senior planners from Dudley Council it looks as if things may be moving forward with the upgrading of the Stour Bridge. I’m optimistic!
  • I would like to continue visits to local primary schools taking a short film and talk about the river. It seems that the only way is to have contacts. Does anyone have a useful contact in a local school? It seems to fit into the curriculum and was well received in the four schools I visited.

All the best to everyone. Let’s hope we can get going again with improved weather conditions!
