Last week has to be billed as one of the strangest weeks we've had in a long time! It started on the Monday with a moorers cat locked in someone elses boat and was followed by a quick sucession of strange enquiries and "interesting" visitors. The funniest moment of the week had to be the call Des took which went something like this..

"Oh no — he doesn't have a mooring — I just know that he's somewhere on his boat near Audlem....or possibly Stafford......"

DON'T leave ashes from your fire inside the boat — even as they cool they can be giving off...
