Roy215 miles

Roy Taylor is making excellent progress with his wheelchair traverse of Northern England (Southport to Hornsea) to raise funds and awareness of the need to improve access to the countryside.

Catch up with his progress via his blog then make sure to make a donation.

Inspiring stuff.

Meanwhile down in London, plans for major new wetlands in Walthamstow have been announced.  £6.5 million pounds of Thames Water and lottery money aim to transform the area into 500 acres of reservoirs and associated wetlands.  Thames Water are putting in £1.5 million; wouldn't it be great to see a similar scale of investment in nature up at the top end of the Thames catchment too.....

More horrible wet drizzly weather at least gave some great views of low flying swifts during a meeting at Middleton Lakes. Let's hope spring/summer returns soon.
