Welcome to the Cleanzine

logo_small.gif

Welcome to the last issue of Cleanzine before our annual break. Our next broadcast will be on 1st September but do in the meantime keep an eye on our Facebook page, where we’ll be posting any important news as it comes in, and do keep us updated on anything you’d like us to share with our readers on your behalf. No promises to post on Facebook of course, but we can line up anything appropriate and newsworthy for upcoming issues.

Enjoy your Summer and do stay safe. This time last year I believe I may have said this because of Covid concerns and in between our final and first broadcasts I was laid up with the virus.

This year it’s wildfires, droughts and flooding making the news and I’m off to several festivals where the camp fire is always the focal point and water has occasionally either run out or been contaminated. I’m pleased that in all cases, the organisers have banned private campfires this year and as I have plenty of water with me and there’s little chance of flooding where I’m going, I should be OK.

Until September then!
