Exe Box: Return now 31st March.

We are extending the deadline for return of your Exe Estuary Boxes to 31 March. We realise that it is very challenging to get the boxes back to us by 14 February and for now we cannot have any pick up points at the libraries or any other public venues during lockdown. As soon as we can we will let you know where you can drop your boxes or will offer a bike pick up service. If you can post your box this would be great as we are keen to see them! We now have people right around the estuary taking part in the box. We have a handful left and are particularly keen now to reach more adults and elders. If you or someone you know might like a box please let us know – we can post or deliver by bike.

If you are feeling a bit stuck with something in the box or want any ideas, tips or guidance on the activities please see here or get in touch and we can have a chat. Anne-Marie has made a 3 minute sound file of tips for writing your Letter to the Sea which you can find on the More About the Box post. Please do fill in as much as you can but don’t feel you have to do everything. We will be sharing the contributions in a public display and event as soon as we can (fingers crossed Summer 2021) and we will let you have your contributions back after this.

Your contributions are important. They enable us to work out what matters to different people around the exe estuary and where Tidelines should focus our energy and research going forward as well as bringing together people in a celebration of the estuary and recognising its importance in all of our lives.

And, if you can, please let us know what you think about the Exe Estuary box. It will help us to know what worked and may not have done and perhaps to find more funding for the project. Thanks. info@tidelines.uk
