Just as a heads up, we are really looking forward to the Worcester Canalside Festival 28th – 30th June 2019, but there is so much more we are doing.
Keep and eye on our social media pages and watch for our logo in local shops, houses and offices.
Do you have an artistic side?
Are you into re-cycling?
How about trying an Arboretum ScrapMap
CCAG will be accepting photographs from individuals, groups (schools, brownies, art groups, boating groups, etc.) of a map of the Arboretum in Worcester made entirely of re-cycled material.
Please only take part safely and with safe materials – ideally with advice from an adult, supervisor, artist.
Entries will be judged by the CCAG Committee and we will visit you with a view to seeing it in person, chatting to the artist/group then the interview and pictures posted on this website, Facebook, Twitter and in the local press.
Deadline for the submissions is Saturday 13th April 2019 at 12:00am
Please submit photograph(s) or video of your entry here (email address and group name required)
The canal takes a gentle turn by the end of Lower Chestnut Street, to follow what was the valley base. As it does so here, it crosses the old droveway (just the other side of the orange brick tiles following Lower Chestnut Street).
Just beyond – where the tree and nature reserve are on the left, is Hangman’s Acre that was cut by the canal’s construction. You will see from an aerial shot that the houses along Lowell Street are parallel to those on Washington and East Street. Lowell Street was the edge of the ‘acre’ which may explain why the houses along there are numbered sequentially on the North East side of the street …it didn’t exist when the Ice Skating Rink was on the other side of the street.
This is not a campaign …it’s a fact of Worcester life that the fun and silliness of the residents of the Arboretum and Chestnut community is to be admired – because you’re not going to stop it 🙂
Keep Worcester Weird and Wonderful is a Facebook group for just some of the things about Worcester that make you smile daily.
Archaeologist’s drying area
In the Worcester News was posted a picture of the Arboretum FC … do you recognise any of these guys either by name or by anecdotal reputation?
