WOW its April

Welcome to this the 2nd of these blogs, hope you enjoyed reading the first one. Our March meeting was entitled “What happens to our water and waste” rather a catchy title and one I was not particularly interested in but of course in the interest of our group and in solidarity to Women everywhere I rocked up as some may say to the meeting and found that the speaker from Wessex water made a rather dry subject quite interesting. The facts and the figures went completely over my head although I am sure they were important but the fact that they had created Bleadon Levels Nature Reserve was, as I had no idea this existed

It was created when construction of major sewage works was carried out and consists of 27 hectares of land according to the website www.wessexwater.co.uk just search for Bleadon. The car park is open Monday to Friday but can be accessed anytime on foot via a footpath at Uphill. Some of our members clearly knew all about this and visited regularly but as a recent dog sitter and walker I pricked up my ears

After the speaker left there was time for a short craft session and chat with friends and the raffle of course (no didn’t win again) but for me the highlight was cake, yes, a slice of homemade cake and tea served in a china mug as we do not now use polystyrene cups (dreadful things) sadly we used to! But we have seen the light. Please continue the cake!!

My own fight against plastic is going well I think but it is an ongoing battle from sourcing items to buy without ANY plastic packaging to politely declining the small plastic bags that are offered in the shops for no good reason and then watching my family’s faces as I am counting the number of plastic bottles they have in their bathrooms. If anyone would like to let me know about their own fight against plastic I would love to hear from them! Perhaps this is something we should all be doing as a group?

Well I have consulted my very handy ‘what’s on all year’ guide and next month is a talk by the Gemini project and a craft session of course. I have taken a photo of The Programme 2018, to give it its official title, on my phone so I can peruse at a moment’s notice I’m just waiting for someone to ask me

Are there any new book clubs formed yet?

Hope to see you all at the next meeting
