KEEPING YOU IN TOUCH - YOUR FREE MONTHLY NEWSPAPER DELIVERED DOOR-TO-DOOR FOR 31 YEARS Katy & Daniel’s Island Adventure PART 2 OF A SHORT STORY FOR YOUNG CHILDREN BY CHRIS BOWER©2018


Archie tells them that they should always go the other way around the island because it is much more sheltered and so the sea is not so rough. He also tells them that, where they lost their oar, when the tide is going out or coming in, it rushed between two islands and there is a very strong current. It was this current that took them onto the small island. They were very lucky the island was in the way because they could have gone very far out to sea.


Daddy said, “Well! You are never too old to learn a lesson and I have certainly learnt mine today.”


Last time Katy, Daniel with their Mummy and Daddy found themselves stranded on a desert island.


Just then, the sharp eyes of Katy spot a boat. They all jump up and down and wave to attract the attention of the boat. It does not seem to have seen them. Yes, it has! The boat changes course and comes to the island. It is the lobster fishermen, Archie and Angus.


“We found your oar and thought something terrible had happened to you,” they said.


They all tell Archie and Angus their story.


“Ah!” said Archie, “You tried to go the wrong way around the island at the wrong time.”


Archie and Angus take them all back to their safe little beach, with their rowing boat being towed behind.


They all thank Archie and Angus for their rescue and invite them in for tea. Archie and Angus say they must get off to their lobster pots.


When they have gone Mummy says, “It is a good job they did not come in for tea, because we still have no milk!”


Daddy says, “Let’s take the rowing boat the other...”


“NO!” says Mummy. “We have had enough rowing for one day. We will walk across the island.”


And that is what they did.


HOLLY AND NATALIE’S PLASTIC FREE FOOD STALL where you can bring empty bottles to fill.


Cockermouth Mums Holly and Natalie have started a plastic free food stall, selling dried pantry goods such as, rice, lentils, muesli, oats, quinoa, nuts, seeds, dried fruit as well as bamboo toothbrushes, eco-friendly cleaning utensils and more!


It’s all sold unpackaged and plastic free, so customers can either bring their own containers or they have jars with a deposit system, so you can fill up and takeaway. Paper bags are also available.


Holly and Natalie commented they have had such a warm reception from the public and have already gained a loyal customer base who come every couple of weeks for refills.


The girls are currently popping up at The Hub (Kings Church), Market Place, every second and fourth Saturday of the month, where they put on a ‘Plastic Free Market’ with other like -minded stallholders and will be joining the URC Country Market, two Fridays a month from


August.


Their next date at The Hub is the 21st of July from 9.00am until 11.30am.


They are trying to help those who want to shop more consciously and bring awareness to protecting the planet, as well as the local environment by reducing waste and re-using plastic that would otherwise be thrown away. There is a laundry and bathroom refill station

Holly and Natalie hope to see you there and don’t forget to bring your containers!

AND NOW FOR SOMETHING TO DO...


Make Your Own Bathysphere


Something to help you see below the surface of water. This would be fun on holiday to help you look into rock pools!


●Cut the bottom out of the carton ●Cut the top out of the lid ●Put the clingfilm over the top of the carton


●Push the lid (with the top cut out) back on to the carton to hold the clingfilm in place


●Turn the carton upside down and you have your underwater viewer


Try it in the bath. Push the carton into the water and you will be able to see the bottom clearly through the clingfilm. Take it with you next time you go to the seaside and have fun looking into rock pools.


HINT: If you can paint the sides of the carton black it cuts out the side light and gives you a better view through the bottom. Also, take spare clingfilm with you just in case you have to replace it in the bathysphere.
