Following the success of August’s session, Nicola Jane Claxton put on another workshop for Hambrook volunteers on September 9th, and the photo shows proud participants with the results of their labours. Second from left is Mike Sole, Lib Dem councillor for Canterbury South, whose generous officer’s grant enabled us to install five new benches along the river last winter. Mike’s grant, coupled with money from the Co-Op Local Community Fund, also helped fund both weaving workshops. On the far right are Rick Norman and Paul Roberts, two trustees of Love Hambrook Marshes. Encouraged by the positive response to these sessions, we would like to run some more next year open to the public.
