Safety Afloat

There's a huge event coming up next month at the Overwater Marina — Safety Afloat.

As you can see from the poster — click on either section to enlarge — there's entertainment for all. A great list of activities and it even ends with: "Plus Loads More."

The day will see the opening of a new bridge across the entrance to the marina, perhaps a model for one across the canal near the marina some day in the future!

There are safety demonstrations in the water and the RAF helicopter will also be on site, plus a chance to meet a lifeguard and police divers.

There's a serious side too — you could learn to save a life. There will be free First Aid and CPR seminars. Audlem First Responders will be there too so you can learn more about their vital work in the area.

Make a note of the date — Sunday 24th June. It has all the makings of a great day out — and just a mile north of Audlem.

For many years people have walked via the farm drive and generally always been polite and courteous but over the last couple of weeks we have had incidents of (on these occasions) gentlemen (I use the term loosely) that have been trespassing and allowing their dogs to run freely on private land used to feed livestock.
