No Direction

No Direction is our 70ft Narrowboat which is now home to my wife Jayne and myself, it was launched on 4th February 2008.

We spend the Winters in a Marina and cruise in the warmer weather.

A Busy Couple of Days.

Thursday, 7th March 2013.
Kings Bromley Marina.

We've a hectic couple of days approaching, Friday we're taking my mother into Oswestry Orthopaedic Hospital for a knee replacement, she had one replaced last Easter, now it's the other ones turn.

All this means a very early start for us, we have to get to Shrewsbury, pick her up and then on to Oswestry for 7am as the surgeon will operate the same day.

On Saturday I'm at Braunston with "The Friends of Raymond", we've volunteered to carry out some vegetation clearance around the place, for such a "honeypot area" Braunston has not been well maintained.

The job on Saturday will involve cutting back overhanging trees and bushes between the Stop House and the A45 road bridge, if we do a good job then we may be asked to help again in the future. 

We're using our working boat Nutfield and CRT are supplying a work flat (it's a boat, not somewhere to live!), tools and safety equipment, we also have two people coming from Braunston Canal Society who are certified by CRT to use powered hedge trimmers plus our own Nick Scarcliffe who's a professional forester.

So if anyone's boating around Braunston on Saturday keep clear of the "Slash and Burn Gang".

P.S.  For anyone who read the blog earlier I have amended Buckingham Canal Society to Braunston Canal Society.
