Back to School with Operation Beach Clean...


As school holidays race on, my Nippers are in danger of reverting into something feral and unwashed. Sea Nymph pointed this out to me in gentle but accusatory tones the other night as we dragged them off the beach. I prefer to think of it as "getting back to nature" but even I can accept that my alternative perspective can have a limit. Perhaps this point is reached when little boys - never overly-concerned with aiming at, or flushing toilets in the first place - respond to remonstration with the mantra, "But Dad! If it's yellow let it mellow, it it's brown flush it down!".

And on that lavatorial link, Surfers Against Sewage (SAS) are encouraging schoolkids to be more aware of the quality of their water by releasing a free online educational resource featuring two "Ecogroms" called Sandy Bottom and Crystal Clear (pictured above). Whilst aimed at people working in the UK education younger groms anywhere might like to click through the cartoons and storyboards - my lot did!
