When did you last hear the china clay centre of Cornwall called the 'Cornish Alps'? As nature returns through natural re-colonisation and land management, this mining landscape's renowned bleakness and whiteness are gradually vanishing.
A day out to the Wildfowl & Wetland Trust centre at Slimbridge on a coach is an idea that several people have mentioned over the last few years so we decided to arrange a trip for this winter. But before the ink was dry, it is already fully subscribed to by our regulars, just by word of mouth, so apologies to anyone else who would have liked to have joined us. We had to choose between a 16 seater coach or a 33 seater and as this is part subsidised from our funds, we felt that we could not risk the larger vehicle; it would have been such a huge worry to fill it.
