Community Science Workshop
Ever booked for an event, feeling full of enthusiasm, only to wake on the day and regret it? Such we’re my thoughts last Wednesday. I had booked for a Community Science Workshop in Appledore, North Devon. This event was classroom based, with a “hands on” outside element added. Outside meant on the banks of the Taw/Torridge estuary, in the pouring rain, hail and sleet accompanied by a blasting gale, with a wind chill factor of minus three. “Hands on meant” searching amongst the sand, mud and stones to find elusive marine life within a designated area, surrounding the Time and Tide bell. The first to be erected in the UK.
