It feels like it has been some time since I was last in touch but I'm happy to say that after the usual summer break our work parties will get going again next Tuesday. We will have plenty of tidying up to do across the site, not least because on the following Saturday a number of visitors from the Inland Waterways Association, whose AGM is in Stoke over the weekend, will be on a tour around the site, which I will be leading. It is a good opportunity to tell people about our project and I'd like to get the site looking as good as we can for our visitors.

Firstly, thanks to those who came to our rearranged work party last month. I don't like to change things at short notice but we had so much to do it made sense on this occasion and we achieved what we wanted to.

Thanks to everyone who came to our work party last month. We had a number of new faces and made great progress with preparing parts of the site for the Footsteps project to begin later this year. In many ways this is the best time of year to be on site as the vegetation we have cleared over the winter has not yet regrown so it is easy to see what progress has been made.

It has been a really exciting week for us at Burslem Port, with the announcement on Monday of a new footpath and publication of a new strategic action plan. This update is longer than usual, but I hope you find it all interesting.

Apologies for the very late notice but I'm afraid that tomorrow's work party has had to be cancelled. Unfortunately I am now unable to attend due to a work-related issue and it is too late to find anyone else to lead the day. The next work party will be on 26th June, as previously notified.
Please also don't forget that we will be at Etruria Canals Festival the weekend after next, 3rd and 4th June. Do come along and find out more about recent developments on the Inland Waterways Association stand.

Firstly, thanks to those of you who have attended work parties over the past couple of months. Our work party dates have coincided with some pretty variable weather recently, but we have managed to stay on top of things, keeping the site looking tidy. This has been particularly useful as we have had an increased number of visitors down there recently, including a television crew from ITV who were filming activities with young people as part of the Feral Spaces project.

Last week we hosted our first work party of the year, cutting back and burning vegetation near to the Luke Street entrance to the site, as well as doing a litter pick along the whole site. Thanks to the volunteers who turned up and made this a successful day, even though the weather did its best to put out our bonfire in the morning!
