Spoke to Verity over the phone this afternoon and a lad called Ian has just been up to the cem to get a photo of me looking suitably hacked off. I've been told it should appear in either tomorrows, or more likely Wednesdays Gazette.
He also said that we should try and persuade a local tradesman to repair the fence gap on the premise that they would run another story to give him some free advertising. Anyone know anyone?
I've replaced some of the missing feeders with the last of the spares I had in the shed, the others will have to wait until I've got a bit spare time to get back down to Wilkos. Sods Law the Bramblings will turn up this week and quickly leave due to a distinct lack of Nyger seed!

Anyone know if the local foghorn (think it is in North Tyneside as the Souter one is not functional but I may be wrang) is broken or not being used any more? It seems like absolutely ages since I heard and it is not like the visibility has been superb the whole winter! regards all Chris

Hi All, Just to let you know we are holding a tree planting event on Saturday 16th March – details below. Feel free to pass the details on to anyone you think may be interested.
The council’s Greenspace Team is looking for people to join them at their upcoming tree planting event on Saturday 16th March starting at 10:30am. Meet on Church Bank opposite St Paul’s Church, Jarrow. All are welcome and booking is not necessary, just turn up on the day. Please come prepared - a coat, warm clothes, a pair of boots or wellies and possibly a flask of tea are recommended. All tools and equipment will be provided. Children under 16 must be accompanied by a responsible adult. The trees have been supplied free of charge by the Woodland Trust as part of the charity’s Jubilee Woods project, marking Her Majesty The Queen’s historic Diamond Jubilee by planting 6 million trees across the country. IKEA and its customers have sponsored the tree pack we have received through the ‘pledge a tree’ scheme at till points.
The site where they are to be planted is an area of green space tucked away in the heart of Jarrow. The river Don runs through the site and is surrounded by a combination of meadow, undulating hills, mature tree belts and open green space. This little oasis is also the location of the council’s newly created Jubilee Wood. The trees supplied by the Woodland Trust will help towards the goal of enriching the site and making it a great place for wildlife and people.
If you need further information, please contact Clare Rawcliffe, Countryside Officer on 0191 4247423 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Apologies if you have received this more than once by virtue of being on multiple mailing lists / forums. Thanks Clare
