Spirit of Catterline to be Launched Next Weekend

The Spirit of Catterline At last! After finishing off some final details, Spirit of Catterline is now ready to be launched!

She will be on display at the Catterline Gala on Saturday 8th June, and will be launched on Sunday 9th at around 3:30 pm.

You are invited to come and watch her slip into the water. We also hope that we will be able to get several people into the boat to have a row.

As the road down to the harbour is closed, we are planning to walk the boat down to Catterline harbour on Sunday. Work is on-going on the road, so we will be checking that the road is passable on Friday. Please do not drive down to the harbour.

Massive thanks to all of everyone who has worked on the boat, whether for one or a hundred hours, and also those who have supported the project. Without you all, we would have never got so far.

Weekend Writing Retreat with Kenneth Steven

Kenneth Steven Writing RetreatBoswell House is delighted to welcome the well-known writer Kenneth Steven to lead this residential October weekend. A writing retreat is a chance to take time out from the hectic whirl of daily life to find the courage to engage with the imagination. It’s about doing so with kindred spirits, and it’s about learning more about the creative process and how we can develop our skills more effectively. Kenneth Steven, a poet and writer of fiction for adults and youngsters alike, has for many years facilitated intensive creative writing sessions, and published two handbooks on the sculpting and publishing of poetry. Please bring along some examples of your work- in-progress for sharing with Kenneth during one-to-one sessions, and also your favourite piece of writing by a writer other than Kenneth.

Creative Makeover Planned for Wind Farm

Wind turbineThe operators of the St John's Hill wind farm have agreed to allow a group of local artists to modify the newly installed turbines so that they make a dramatic statement about mankind and our place in the environment.

Details of the project are being kept under wraps until the unveiling planned for later this year. Rumours that the turbines are to be given yellow blades, an orange hub and a green pylon so they resemble enormous daffodils have been strongly denied.
