Steve and a very small team have now removed 18 out of 28 identified wrecks at Anna Maria Creek. They have recently been granted a 3 year licence to remove as many wrecks as they can from The Helford River.  To give you some idea of the scale of the job, The Duchy estimate that there are some 12,000 abandoned boats on their 380 miles of waterline. Amazingly there is nowhere that properly recycles fibre glass in Cornwall and Devon – for instance, it can be broken up and used in roadbuilding. Those that claim to recycle it seem to be sending it to landfill after a bit of research.    

Volunteers needed to sift through 8 large bags of rubbish that is being brought to Gweek from Anna Maria Creek – date provisionally Wednesday 16th June in Gweek.  It can be a messy job but very necessary and useful!  Email admin@pnyc.co.uk to put your name down to help.
And a volunteer is needed to manage the online donations to COS.  Monica and Steve are looking for someone who can log the donations, thank donors and reply to questions from donors. If you might be interested email admin@pnyc.co.uk and we’ll pass you on to COS.
